Totally ace synth pop from a New York trio (sister/brother duo plus a friend who started making music with them after Hurricane Sandy destroyed his house). Four chilly noir bangers that all unfurl with patience but introduce irresistible details with perfect timing. The smooth vocals have an introspective, brooding tone that lifts this above generic chill. Brilliant, my favorite songs I've heard in this style in a long time. RIYL HTRK, Chromatics, Drab Majesty, Cherushii & Maria Minerva. Just pick one, you can't go wrong. No FCCs detected.|
1. (7:10)—Medium-slow, spooky beginning. Intense first three minutes, followed by a distinct second half that rides out the dark serenity.
2. (7:05)—Mid-tempo start. Beat eventually goes double time, keeps picking up, hits the autobahn.
3. (5:11)—Slow jam, liquid bass. Luxurious and warm.
4. (6:22)—Slow beat with insistent synth pattering, strong John Carpenter aura. Gradual build to a majestic finale.
