Tinted Windows

Tinted WindowsTinted Windows is an American rock supergroup formed in New York by guitarist James Iha, previously of The Smashing Pumpkins and A Perfect Circle, singer Taylor Hanson of Hanson, bassist Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and Ivy, and Bun E. Carlos of Cheap Trick. Sharing a common love for power-pop, rock and new wave of the late ’70s and early ’80s, the quartet decided to join forces and record an album that fused all of these influences with the more modern rock and pop sounds of their own groups.

The result is Tinted Windows, a stripped-down, high-energy record that combines the strengths and identifiable styles of all four members, and yet doesn’t really sound like anything else any of the four has done elsewhere. And with three of the four band members contributing songs, there is a real band vibe in the diversity of the material. It’s true that with supergroups it’s usually all-or-nothing, but for the most part Tinted Windows get it all right, and even when they don’t, they still get by on their power chords, tight melodies, and catchy choruses.
