Soothing, swirling synth-pop from the West coast Canadian duo with the throwaway name but enticing sound. Formerly Booty EP, Alli Deleo and Francis Hooper produce a dreamy melodious soup. It feels like musical cloud watching as their airy vocals slide on by through the easy mix of oozing synths and guitars. Precise percussion pins it all down to a three minute pop plan.

Singles Thinking and Airbag have instant appeal, but there are delights at every turn. Dive in between the layers to pull out lyrical jewels and even surprising narratives. Remixes and collaborative forces bolster and enrich. But gently does it. Sit back, close your eyes, relax into the mix and feel the smile slide up your face.
