“I shake all morning long/ And cry all afternoon/ I feel a million eyes/ In an empty room” Boston duo The Bynars sing of the twitchy, existentially attuned Everyone Is Here – a slow-build synthpop masterpiece the like of which The Postal Service were once able to mail in with unerring frequency. And although the song might fizzle out amidst schizophrenic rhetoric (“Everyone is here/ Is anyone here?” quizzes Matt Jatkola rather maniacally atop Mike Champ’s measured crescendos and his own suitably looped yelps), there’s enough gumption to it to suggest that, unlike Darren Hayes and Daniel Jones of once upon a when, The Bynars may well have enough innovation in the tank to fly them to the moon and back.
