Prepare your sunglasses and flip-flops and head to the beach while opening track, Peoples, serenade on the background. This sonic charmer opens with surf pop guitars blended with smooth disco-ish vocals and arrangement. The song is an awesome jumping off point for the whole track, as it’s addictively hooking.
Doin’ It Right utilizes energy-packed drums and steady flowing melodies. With hand-clapping beats placed perfectly between seamless guitar tunes, the track showcases a perfect balance between texture and rhythmic contrast.
Rapid drum beats reminiscent of Peter Bjorn and John’s Young Folks opens in Leaves. One of the fan’s favorites, this piece features a variety of beats set on a background of ambient, atmospheric musings. The contrast produces an easy-listening track that gives the right amount of oomph.
