Album Review
HYPRK
Reviewed 2019-04-25 
Brooklyn-based synthpop from an all-girl group (including a trio of sisters) led by a former member of Here We Go Magic. Pulsing beats, upbeat guitars, jazzy elements, and some earnest philosophizing amidst all the jangles and glitter. Lots of fun with great lyrics and interesting thematic approaches. All tracks FCC Clean.

RIYL: La Roux, Bat For Lashes, Hospitality, St. Vincent, Yelle

TRY: 3,1,5,8

*1. (4:03) Grinding electro beat with cool synth stabs and quirky snippets of vocal samples
2. (3:53) Aqueous with sunny keyboard
*3. (3:52) Gyrating beat with silky smooth vocals. Lyrics explore the grieving process following the death of their father: “if we’re only water can I make you mine/if we’re only water aren’t we one in time?”
4. (4:39) Midtempo, reflective. Quivering synth lines that slowly build into a burst of sound at the end
*5. (6:58) Lilty love song exploring relationships. Plodding synth lines, jazzy with sax and flute. Beat switches up at the 3:30 mark and gains a moody, austere edge. Transitions into a minimalist icy beat with saxophone
6. (3:48) Galloping beat, builds in energy
7. (3:28) Strummy synthpop with rolling pianos and purred vocals
*8. (3:45) Peppy, poppy, sweeping melodies
9. (3:08) Lumbering bassline, minimal percussion, vocals at the forefront
10. (4:51) Reflective piano R&B. Slowly rises to a dense full-bodied crescendo with a string ensemble and pounding drums
