Interstellar Commute (EP)
Opening pop-rock groover "23rd Century Love Song" brings a feel-good vibe which instantly lifts the listener. Full of melody, and driving guitars. The track brings feelings of warmth and you feel instantly relaxed, knowing you're in for a treat. "Fhloston" conjurs up the retro vibe of a 1984 12" club remix of a pop hit, whilst still retaining an edge to itself. The vocals sound like Gary Numan during his hey-day, giving the listener a nostalgic feeling. Edgy and comfortable at the same time, "Fholston" is definitely a stand out track. Next, SEASON 3 bring "Mental Circuitry" to the party. A powerhouse of twinkling synths, retro pads and a killer guitar solo, this track has a pop melody that sticks in your head and a beat that refuses to let you not tap your feet. As with the previous 2 tracks, the vocal harmonies are wonderfully presented allowing the melodies to embrace you and make you smile. The final track, and the last stop on this interplanetary voyage, is "Wish I Could Stay". This track has a bouncy, driving feel to it with a pulsing bassline, pushing the song along to its natural conclusion. It never runs out of steam (or rocket fuel) and is the perfect foil for the lyrical lament.
