Quickly becoming one of my favorite EP’s, this 80’s synth-pop inspired 5 song collection smoothly interacts with my emotions, keeps me moving while in the office.  That doesn’t seem to be much of a positive for these driving electo-pop synth tunes.  The vocals don’t stand out as being entirely unique, however they fit the groove and complement the instrumentation.

Released in January 2018, just ahead of their self titled album released a few months later in March.  I can’t help but vision the show Stranger Things while listening to the 3rd track “Heaven.” The bass scale tonnes in this track are driving and accentuate the heart beat in the low end.

There isn’t a track I don’t appreciate, all have been enjoyable albeit somewhat unmemorable. I definitely save this in my easy listening playlist and pull out as a lesser complement to the Weeknd.
