The latest from Ontario's Dany Laj & The Looks has that familiar feel without exactly sounding like anyone else. "Don't Keep Me Guessin'" is an impossibly upbeat power pop song that leans heavily into the pop side while keeping both feet in the rock and folk worlds, with maybe a little punk edge tossed in. It gets dangerously close to being too cute or saccharine, but stops just shy enough to stay charming and fun. It's just a fun pop/rock song with zero pretention, which is exceedingly rare with that genre. If you occasionally just want a rootsy pop punk power pop song that will warm your callous music snob's heart, you need to check out "Don't Keep Me Guessin'."
