The Austin Chronicle

Texas Platters

Reviewed by Rachel Rascoe, October 26, 2018, Music

Returning from a set of buzzy 2015 EPs, the local brother-sister duo ditches their label and revisits adolescence. Sticking to simple acoustics, the pair induces the twinkle and turbulence of early-Aughts indie. Jendayi Bonds, 21, deals soulful vox and bright guitar on high school returns "Growing Pains" and "Essay." A light percussive touch from drummer Gyasi Bonds, 18, lends a tranquil melodicism. Produced by Blue October's Matt Noveskey, Like I Love This shakes off some youthful squeaky clean-ness.
