Pop music is great, but if you’re looking for emotional depth, you may not find it in an LMFAO song. So when Chase Manhattan was recalibrating after his band short-circuited midway to their big breakthrough, he turned his focus to making pop music with substance. Enter Goodnight Argent, a nod to an old studio on Argent Road in the band’s hometown of Pasco, Wash. The band crafts burning, soulful pop, part Justin Timberlake, part Ben Gibbard. “Those Were The Days” is a smoldering look at summer love, driven by a simple back beat and panging piano. “When the sun comes up will the stars remember our love?” Manhattan wonders. Then, like an admonishment, the band fires back with “Don’t Get Sentimental, ” a track filled with spacy sequences and piercing guitars. The only thing these guys have in common with LMFAO is that they’re sexy and they know it.
