Defender recalls classic and college rock, as well as the swagger of old New York girl groups and the insight and sarcasm the early new wave songwriters. Wawerna’s dry delivery finds a perfect match in lead guitarist Newman, whose lush, multilayered harmonies and intertwining guitar parts give this record its distinctive sound – something like Chrissie Hynde fronting Squeeze or Nico signed to Stiff Records. As intricate pop songcraft crumbles into gauzy atmospherics and literate observations devolve into boozy chaos, Bird of Youth’s rave-ups and kiss-offs turn indie-rock braininess back on itself with a casual frivolity.
