Four tracks of some great lo-fi pop, that seems to be unintentionally uplifting in a very laid-back way.

Now, a lot of the time I seem to listening to music and comparing it to the weather. Well this time I find this is a great backdrop to a sunny, yet frosty winters morning. Enough of the weather report!

Opening with the fairly bouncy “It’s On You” you are taken to a gentle place, and a great opener to the EP. “Orange Luz” just flows and seems to be gently effortless, the sound has a slightly harsher edge to it. While “Lascascadas” starts in a slightly more grandiose fashion that then falls into a gentle backdrop, that could have you flying over the landscape. It has a bass driven sound, that almost puts one in mind of Joy Division, albeit it is not a dark track. But, with the distant vocals it captures that ethereal feel.


Closing the EP is “Montreal Rock Band Somewhere”; another slice of ethereal beauty, the bass underpinning the guitar. I have to be honest I have no idea what the song is about as I always get carried by the music, and then it is over and I end up on my own journey of self indulgence.

These three guys from South London have produced a 4 track EP that effortlessly flows from track to track, almost in a dreamlike manner. Somehow effortlessy; there seems to be something simplistic about their sound, but I can’t put my finger on it.

What makes this EP great is there is absolutely no pretentions, only what is needed.

The EP is due for release on January 4th.
