It’s the sound of innocence for the summer of 2018. The subdued and adventurous grou Another Michael shares their new EP, Land, (Topshelf Records), which is out today. Land is a masterfully crafted indie pop snack that flashes blissfully with infectious inflections of R&B and electronic.
The band defies immediate classification. While they incorporate a wealth of stylistic touchstones, their uniqueness presents as a thoughtful amalgam of indie pop carried by crispy, subdued electronic percussion. The eponymous Michael Doherty nimbly lavishes and bolsters each song with an angelic, agile vocal style, occasionally harking back to early 2000s R&B. But the group’s crafty instrumentation and production sit center stage too, consistently driven by a diverse sound palette that flashes with a distinct compositional elegance.
