New York-based Guards is led by long-haired California crooner Richie James Follin (brother of Madeline Follin from Cults). The band — which also includes Loren Ted Humphrey, John Fredericks and Kaylie Church — produces charming, retro lo-fi pop that calls to mind the sweet vocal harmonies and cheery melodies of classic Doo-wop and 60s girl groups. Their songs are chock full of hearty organ chords, dark lyricism, fuzzy reverb and rollicking choruses, and even feature cameos by Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek and MGMT’s James Richardson.
