Darin Rajabian and Caroline Myrick return to the FrostClick scene with their self-titled debut album released last January 2011. Nightlife-EP boasts six infectious tracks that are strictly more disco-sounding than their second album Radio which was also featured here.
There is a distinct brand in Nightlifeâ€™s music that you wouldnâ€™t hear in any other band. The musical fusion of Darinâ€™s euro-disco tunes and Carolineâ€™s soft vocals make a solid foundation to the collection.
Put on your dancing shoes as Our Love opens up with electro beats and flavorful synthpop. Experience a steady party high with this disco-infused song.
Fever follows with an eclectic combination of glowing keys and deep, stretching tunes. This roughly-cut gem features much texture and sonic surprises.
Traversing a more electro aesthetic, Lightspeed is a repeatedly listenable piece. Steady chill-out beats touched with Carolineâ€™s ethereal voice is aÂ flavorfulÂ treat for the ears. Dancing Without Me, on the other hand, is sexy and edgy. I personally like Nightlifeâ€™s consistency on their music, creating a solid musical package for the duo.
Goodbye showcases a perfect contrast between sharp beats and eclectic, ambient melodies. Press play and let this track transport you to psychedelic universe.
The album closes up withÂ Wait, a slower track with electro atmospherics. Carolineâ€™s vocals shines through as Darinâ€™s arrangement perfectly uplifts each element in every single way.
Nightlife has formed something brilliant here and itâ€™s evident with the collectionâ€™s level of quality. This is the kind of EP thatâ€™s both funky and soothing. The tracks here evoke an infinite, chill-out dance thatâ€™s definitely worth a repeat.
This album is available as a pay-what-you-want/free download on bandcamp.
