There’s something special, blissful and, yes, melancholic about Santos’ voice. Maybe even haunting. “Calling Out” sounds immediately familiar, as if it was first born in the ‘80s but received minor contemporary flourishes like cleaner synths, eerie samples and a down-tempo Balearic groove.
[Calling Out] has me thinking of the amazing Miike Snow‘s “Sylvia” and wishing their last album wasn’t such a bore and sounded a bit more like this.
[DIAMOND] is a radiant and uplifting gem, full of glimmering synths and equally polished hooks
Matthew Santos’ breathtaking vocals... gently float through the verses and then passionately burst in the empowering chorus
