Release Date: June 26, 207
Who Is It?
A Brooklyn indie-pop quartet with with a on-fire rhythm section. All six tracks on their EP End Times are little beauties with loads of elemental treats.
How Is It?
Concise and fun, mostly. The guitars change tones from atmospheric in songs like "End Times" to blustery and dirty in songs like "Skin." The overall product is a lot crisper than I would expect from a bar-hopping NY indie outfit, but the production hits the distortion and echo just right. The piano-led "Let Me Down" is a swelling heartbeat tinged with nostalgia, and the first track "Malou" is a sexy club beat. Prominent bass lines are just too hot for this to be an everyday indie-pop throwaway.
