Arling & Cameron excel at putting the "pop" into electro-pop, and their 2nd album, _We Are A&C_ displays this perfectly. The album starts out ridiculously peppy, from the strings and horns that sing out halfway through "5th Dimension" to the acid and scratching of "B. B. Electro," there’s an undeniable current of fun here. They’re not afraid of mocking themselves in the title track—"Two fruits from a musical tree." Sure, if you say so. The funky tropicalia of "Coconut Conga" gives a sly nod to Senor Coconut’s own digital reinterpretations, and "Can You Pah-Pah?" is deliriously perky. "Born in June" takes the tempo down several notches to a soft R&B vibe, while “Love & Understanding” swoons with cheeky romance. If Italian jazz is more your thing, then jump to "Ocean Drive," a cruise down the Malfi coast, and "Sunday" is just as warm and sunny. The Delta blues of "Multiplications Blues" or the punk attitude of “Don’t You Fuck” show a whole new side to A&C.
