Two Cheers Talk “Rollick”

When Two Cheers released their lauded album Splendor in 2015, singer/band leader Bryan Akcasu decided to skip touring and spent the summer relocating from Los Angeles to Ann Arbor, Michigan. He left his band mates behind in sunny California, opting to form a new iteration of the band in Ann Arbor. Fast forward two years, and the newly formed quintet have released an equally sparkling album in Rollick.
The late '80s, early '90s sound of the new album brings to mind bands like The Cure and Real Estate — moody yet polished indie pop. That crisp sound is a feat all in its own, considering Akcasu recorded the album in his basement.
