Their self-made video for Return of the Century’s “Amulet” depicts two of the band’s original members, Caroline and Edward, acting out the story (based partially on the true tale of The Incredible String Band’s Licorice McKenzie) about a woman who gets lost in the desert…

“This Chicago band’s remarkable second album mixes sweet and sour, employing graceful chamber pop to illuminate twisted relationships… gnawing unease has rarely sounded so appealing.” – SPIN

“This hip-shaking debut single is a blast of California sunshine, flushed with tambourines, violins, and gorgeous three-part harmonies. Be sure to pay attention to the piano-violin interlude at the 1:20 mark — it’s one of the prettiest lines we’ve heard all year.” – NylonMag.com

“…their easy, breezy approach to ’60s and ’70s pop-dom has more in common with British-American blues-pop chart-toppers Fleetwood Mac. Boy-girl belted vocals sits neatly atop clean guitar tones with warm, whistful melodies that guide you through tales of passion and lost love.” – Chicagoist

“The 1900s cull elements from their namesake century’s best pop music and reassemble them, to great effect, in this one. The sextet volleys from jagged guitars and caffeinated drumbeats to languorous strums and fiddles, all anchored by three unpretentious lead singers, nimble guitarists, and a propulsive rhythm section.” – Utne Reader

“The 1900s have succeeded brilliantly at striking a balance on Return of the Century, seamlessly merging their ’60s sensibilities with crisp modern pop production and stylistic experiments to create their strongest release yet.”
– Windy City Rock
