Exuberant, poppy melodies burst everywhere from Beach Bunny’s new album, Honeymoon. Even as singer-guitarist Lili Trifilio mulls over bittersweet romantic feelings on “Promises,” guitarist Matt Henkels, drummer Jon Alvarado and bassist Anthony Vaccaro surround her with a driving punk-rock attack. Trifilio’s ambivalence about love on “Cuffing Season” is disguised by euphoric hooks and punk energy, in contrast to the spare and pretty “Racetrack” and the languid pop reverie “April.” “Rearview” is another intimate, vulnerable aside before it culminates in a fuzzy, grungy ending. The sunny power-pop chords of “Ms. California” belie Trifilio’s envious lyrics about a romantic rival. The Chicago band’s catchy hooks tie all these songs of love and confusion into one sweetly charming box of punk-pop candy. With Field Medic and Indigo De Souza.
