Adult Nights ' earnest, ever so slightly bittersweet guitar pop feels descended from generations of Californian bands: echoes of the Beach Boys ' harmonies and backing vocals, Weezer 's crunchy guitars and vulnerable lyrics, and Rooney and Phantom Planet 's sun-dappled hooks pop up throughout Adult Nights. Though Wild Light doesn't add anything radically new to this tradition, they uphold it with charm, particularly on the songs that use the Golden State as their muse. Whether they're singing about California or New Hampshire, or somewhere in between, Wild Light knows their way around a pop song, from "My Father Was a Horse"'s irrepressible choruses to the way the "whoo whoo" backing vocals propel "Canyon City"'s new wave sheen to slicker heights. At their best "Heart Attack" , the band's classicism sounds instantly familiar and comfortably worn-in; when they're less inspired "Future Homes," "New Year's Eve" , it sounds more than a little predictable.

But throwing back a couple of vodka sodas at the same three bars you always frequent can get a little, well, stale. And while no doubt your amazing crew can make just about anywhere feel like an Insta-worthy party, it's probably time to change things up once your go-to bartender has got your entire group's drink order memorized. So what's a gal to do when she wants to reinvent GNO? The answer: a hell of a lot! Have a friend who is way into tarot?
