'Dance Bear' is the most immediate, combining beats from chillwave and vocals from the lighter side of trip-hop, they converge with more established indie sounds to make lively dreampop, a bit like jj if they were fed performance enhancing drugs before hitting the studio. After a handful of spins you understand the hype. 'Air' is a little trickier to grasp, partly down to the lower tempo and more hushed sound. With this comes added emotion though, thanks to the soft vocals and the fact that everything seems to be toned down at least a couple of notches. There's still magic to be found, you just have to dig a little deeper this time. 'Chimera' continues much in the same way as 'Air' left off and we have to say it's all rather lovely.
