I am officially declaring my love for Tinted Windows. Who, might you ask, are Tinted Windows? My new favorite band, of course! They are a "supergroup" consisting of the following former pop/rock stars: Taylor Hanson (of Hanson), James Iha (of Smashing Pumpkins), Adam Schlesinger (of Fountains Of Wayne), and Bun E. Carlos (of Cheap Trick). I know, I know. My first initial reaction was WTF?! However, after listening to their debut album I am, as you know, in love.
The last thing I need is another guilty pleasure (currently on my list of GP's: Taylor Swift, American Idol, Twilight, ZEfron. . . the list goes on and on and on. . .), but I don't have to worry about being made fun of for liking them, right? Tinted Windows is like a cooler version of Hanson, right? So I won't be ridiculed for listening and singing along and thinking they're awesome and bragging to everyone that they're my new favorite band, right? I need to know if it's ok before I start driving around town with the windows down blasting them and singing along to every ooo-whoa, ooo-whoa-ooo, oh!
Tinted Windows is pop music at it's finest and therefore, catchy as hell. Taylor Hanson is awesome and might I say, cuter than ever. I always said he was the best Hanson. Funny, though, how his voice really hasn't changed since his prepubescent mmmboppin' years.
Watch the video for their first single "Kind of a Girl" and you'll see what I mean. And then you will spend the rest of the day trying to get it out of your head. Enjoy!

oh! oh, oh! oh, oh! oh, oh ooo whoa-ooo whoa-ooo whoa!
