Don’t you just love carefree beach music? Cruiser brings us closer to the waves and sand with its latest self-titled EP.
Hailing from Philadelphia, Cruiser is a solo project of Andy States and was produced by States himself and Jeremy Park (producer of Lagoon’s The Year of Hibernation). Released last May 28, 2012, this collection offer six tracks that is certainly meant to make you feel good.
The beat drops in The Fritz. Beachy guitars and ethereal vocals establish a strong sonic backbone for the whole album. This infectious track is certainly worth repeats.
There’s a steady captivating hook in Don’t Go Alone. Taking on the same aesthetic of the previous track, this saccharine piece channels a lot of positive vibes with funky tunes and a hint of spice.
A perfect anthem for the weekend, California showcases brilliant guitar and drum plays coupled with layered vocals that triggers nostalgia. Souvenir, on the other hand, is a slow ballad of sweet melody. Slow dance with a loved one as this sonic gem plays on the background.
With gentle cooing melodies and infectious vocals, Home Turf is an ideal companion for those lazy sunny afternoons. Spelling a new kind of funk, Moving To Neptune closes the album with edgy guitar plays mixed with steady drumbeats and an irresistibly addictive chorus.
Rarely can you find an album that’s jam packed with amazing songs you can’t even choose the best ones. In Cruiser EP, the band’s passion and immense talent is reflected creating a thematic album for chilling out.
