Actual Numbers’ final album, Wordless Marvel, got here out in 2016, however the Minneapolis-based band has lastly launched a brand new EP, Brighter Then. The EP was recorded final winter and exhibits the band journeying deeper into late-’80s indie-pop.
The five-song EP could be very rhythmic and simple to take heed to, however lacks a sure complexity that I would like when listening to music. That mentioned, Brighter Then is nice for listening to whereas winding down earlier than mattress, throughout a chill examine session, or as background music for a meditation. Brighter Then has very chill and calming vibes that evoke imagery of a dawn over a sunflower discipline.
With a slower tempo and minimal lyrics, the EP creates a sure serenity within the listener. Every tune blends seamlessly into the following, and though the tracks do sound very comparable, they every have a singular melody that stands out.
