Why do we like this?

Shy Layers has defied genres for several years now. With stakes in electropop, jazz-fusion, and downtempo, the Atlanta-based artist has begun to make a name for himself. Midnight Marker, the full-length album that dropped just a few days ago, is his best work yet.

"Gateway," one of the LP's most exceptional tracks, is a great introduction to the artist's evolving sound. Tubular melodies pop over a cringe-inducing bass line, and we feel trapped in a greeting card -- all but for a moment. The triteness quickly morphs into something so much more.

As layered vocals dance atop the synthetic atmosphere it's revealed that the artist has been toying with us the whole time. What began as cliché has turned into a reinvention of the past. The track is just as much a flamboyant parody of '80s-era pop as it is Shy Layers's own invention.
