Highlight Lyric: “Even when all her thoughts have passed/ The world seems clear now she’s emptied her head/ Where she hides behind all the words she spilled/Like a veil of text that she’s draped behind” from White Days

Highlight Review: “They weave together a less west coast, more mid-western and yet similar synth-pop vibe, a la Vampire Weekend, with an altogether jubilant sound that carries throughout the album and brings both lyrics and vocals to life in a vibrant and enjoyable way. Their vocals always on the upswing and melodies arcing towards the dance-able, these musicians have hit a stride that is both cutting edge and a mix of things listeners will find familiar.” – read more at Glide Magazine
