With a name like My Robot Friend, sweetly produced indie pop is maybe the last thing that you would expect. While the band does traffic in more electronic jams, “Gone”, featuring the saccharine guitar of Dean Wareham, plays with the exact opposite. With charming strings, a delicate melody and Howard Robot’s quintessentially indie feeling vocals, the track feels straight out of a romantic comedy in the best possible way. It’s exactly the right hit of sugar needed to start spring. Their newest album Open the Book is out now.
