Teamwork isn't a problem for these Canadians, as the 147 million people who saw their YouTube cover of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" can verify; in it, the five-piece hunch around a single guitar, subletting individual frets and strings. Their debut feels equally crowdsourced for maximum popularity, but fractures under its many moods: half heartedly scornful rap rock ("Sometimes"), teen-baiting party anthems ("R.E.V.O."), spare pop about breezy road trips and coconut cocktails ("Summer Vibe"). A handful of tracks are unified in their balance of plush harmonies and folksy guitar breaks – and the group, at last, seems to be in merry agreement.
