"Indicator Indicator is the solo project of Quinzy vocalist/guitarist Sandy Taronno and it’s a logical next step forward from his work in the acclaimed pop/rock band. While the six songs here bear a passing resemblance to his Quinzy material (see: the strong hooks; the hyper-literate lyrics), they’re darker and grittier. The balance between the accessible and the experimental that these songs strike often recalls the work of Wilco (especially opening track My Love Don’t Belong). Still, Taronno hasn’t completely abandoned his pure pop urges: the appropriately anthemic January First comes out with confetti cannons a-blazing."
“The six songs here are smart, sophisticated and challenging and, while Taronno certainly knows how write a pop hook, he also knows how to write dense, literary-minded songs.”
“The songs are exciting, beautifully fleshed out and are guaranteed to stick in your subconscious for days.”
“Indicator Indicator is the solo project of Sandy Taronno, currently fronting Winnipeg’s Quinzy. Though both are rooted in pop, his solo output boasts more of an electronic leaning than his main project. The result is a light, sometimes moody cross between Elliott Smith and The Postal Service with the power pop sensibilities of Spoon and Wilco thrown in for good measure. It’s a great sound for cool summer nights spent in backyards, creating a similar vibe as The Postal Service’s Get Up did upon its release. Taronno’s creativity recently caught the web by storm when he released a video for the song “My Love Don’t Belong” of people around the globe singing along with the tune on their webcams – some seriously, some not so much.”
