Why do we like this?

This delicate electro psych-pop piece offered up by Californian duo slenderbodies explores adeptly the dreamy falsetto-fronted realm of indie electronica canonized earlier in the decade by acts like Glass Animals during the era of Zaba. The almost playful, surrealist vocals overlay bright, dexterous guitar riffs and serve as an indication that this particularly heady brand of dreamy electro-pop is far from fully-tapped, and that the immensely innovative slenderbodies have a wealth of sonic exploration still in store for us.

The rest of the immersive fabulist EP does well to explore similar (marine-themed) plights of genre-bending sonic experimentation, with acoustic elements appearing in the intro and percussion of "opal ocean," '60s California surf-psych sounds sneaking into "little islands," and heavily funk-centric bass motifs driving "mirage."

Slenderbodies continue to produce beautifully crafted material at an impressive pace, and have cemented themselves as pioneers on the indie-pop forefront.
