More sonically diverse than what I'm familiar with from Charlie Johns' previous work, this is a really lush record with layers of guitars and instrumentation creating a warmth that straddles the line between the melancholy of bands like American Football or Stars and 90s Californian pop-rock.
"Blew it" has a beautifully vulnerable vocal, which is nice to see from such an accomplished singer. "Liberty Speaks" has intelligent, sad words which I also interpret as somewhat playful.
It's easy to lose all of the distinct components I've mentioned in the songs as a whole, which is the sign of great pop music. This is a confident and focused E.P. balanced with real craft and expression. Check it out!
