Takka Takka | Mates of State @ Highline Ballroom

I missed Telepathique but caught New York’s Takka Takka play their very diverse blend of guitar pop. Their stuff ranges from quiet harmonies to up-beat rock which made their set a bit confusing. However I really enjoy the way they constantly change the music they play. They are getting somewhere with their stuff and feel they’ll find it soon.

Originally from Lawrence, KS the married indie pop duo Mates of State have been putting out interesting material for several years now, but with “Re-Arrnage Us,” they add some more complexity into their music. It’s still quirky and poppy but with now with added instrumentation giving it a richer and different sound. I was very impressed with Highline’s sound quality and despite the overly priced drinks, the show was great. Really addicting songs with a great crowd.
