Despite claiming themselves to be successors to Lionel Ritchie without the Commodores, the group’s music suggests a closer kinship with the likes of 4AD artists, Portishead, or even NIN. Haunting ethereal vocals drift over powerful rhythms and electro organic beats. From a dreamy melodic pop to slightly menacing soundscapes, the intricate structures may evoke the images of stark landscapes and vast skies but as Worm is Green rather disappointingly point out, they aren’t “really walking on glaciers on an everyday basis.” With critical acclaim for their phenomenal debut lp and even greater praise for their live show and their second album Push Play, it’s about time the world turns and gives them the fame they deserve.
