Largely the baby of songwriter/lead vocalist Scott Masson, OFFICE is all about catchy, ultra-hooky pop songs. Albums such as A Night at the Ritz hint at a bit of Blur here, a sprinkling of Elton John there and overall a less campy Scissor Sisters covering Teenage Fanclub songs. Live, the Chicago quintet's electro tendencies are more pronounced — it relies heavily on lifting keyboard melodies and sick bass lines, à la John Taylor of Duran Duran. As such, an OFFICE concert is always a joyous spectacle, with even the crankiest audience members dancing and clapping along by the time the third song begins.
