Klee, ‘Honeysuckle’ (Minty Fresh)
Klee is a trio (vocals, keyboards, and guitar) who write basic, efficient songs and fit them to a workmanlike variety of musical settings: disco rock (“Gold”), low-lit new wave (“As Long as You Live”), and especially jangle pop (“This Is for Everyone”). A few of them are even presented in both English and German. But singer Suzie Kerstgens’ simultaneously breathy and grainy voice — which pushes similar buttons as Carol van Dijk of Dutch indie-pop vets Bettie Serveert — deserves better.
