really enjoyed their debut ep, and some of these songs are on par (or beyond) those composition-wise, but the production on this isn't really doing it for me. the vocals are way too low, i get that it aligns with the shoegaze/fuzz style they have, but the whole mix just sounds muddy to me. it could potentially just be the stream source, here's to hoping that's the case.

Agreed on every point. Good songs, but the production feels lazy, not stylistic.

Two songs in this and I already dig it more than Anarchy, My Dear. Reminds me a lot of The 1975 and the kind of sounds that band is influenced by. Gotta pre-order this thing on vinyl, I can see this blowing up if it's pushed toward the right markets.

Just grabbed the vinyl as well - too good not to.

Might have to get that 7" they released last year too. That b-side is great.
