Quick Listen: Pretty Speeches (2015) by Poema


If you like HAIM but wish they sounded like a duo instead of a trio (first of all, who are you?), then you’re in luck! Poema, a sister act from Albuquerque, have released Pretty Speeches, an EP with enough pep to out-pop the aforementioned power-pop trio. Unlike HAIM, however, Poema’s Elle and Shealeen Puckett don’t shy away from pedal steel or a little twang, giving standouts “Go Away” and “Forget You in LA” a healthy dose of welcome melodrama. The Pucketts take their pop music very seriously, and it shows on Pretty Speeches.
