Brooklyn duo's trippy and downbeat intelligent pop
This Brooklyn’s duo’s penchant for intelligent pop is obvious, with melody always at the fore. While the title track of their second full-length album is more trippy and downbeat than the majority of the record, ‘Sublime Objective’ is a superb vocal, loop-filled and harmony-laden opener.
‘Under The Sun’ boasts subtle, intricate snares and ‘Noo Yoik’ accented spoken word. Synth heavy ‘Sick City’ has hints of R&B and New Age, whilst the whole record is ambient and at times psychedelic, likely aided by the fact that it was part produced by Chris Coady who has worked with Beach House, Gang Gang Dance and Zola Jesus. Good for those who find Animal Collective too chin-strokey, but like the idea.
