Sparks, not to be confused with the natural phenomenon, or the sports team or the now-defunct candy-flavored alcoholic beverage. Think of Sparks as a comedy duo with music. Um, like, maybe, think glam-rock-and-synth-Flight-of-the-Conchords? If you’re having trouble wrapping your mind around their musical identity, that is. Yeah, little brother Russel sings like a castrato Freddie Mercury. No, you shouldn’t take it too seriously. Sparks music is meant to be absolutely-tively funny fun times. And like the best comedy always does, there’s space in there to smuggle in some astute observations about this human life of ours, and the culture we’re stuck in.
