Indie pop folk. Or is it folky indiepop? Indie folk pop? The Weepies fit all three of these categories.
We can emphasis the pop, the indie, or the folk, and different songs on â€œHideawayâ€ will fit the appropriate accent. â€œWish I Could Forgetâ€ is a great example of the bandâ€™s sound. It feels like it could be a Gordon Lightfoot or America song, at home on â€˜70s AM Radio, what with itâ€™s gentle guitar line and lovely harmonies, but itâ€™s also got some 2000s twee to it. This is largely cheerful, simple music, which is (and has been) at home in the background of network TV family dramas, but then, so was Peter Bjorn and John. (The Weepies songs have appeared on Grey’s Anatomy, Scrubs, The Riches, How I Met Your Mother, and many more.)
The title track is the single, and itâ€™s catchy as hell.
