I swear Carter Reeves is an old soul in the best way possible. He has pure emotional depth combined with catchy hooks which is a formula for genuine staying power in music. That balance he strikes feels like a classic, long-lost approach with how quickly the scene moves, and I must say, finally hearing his new wave in the context of an EP just makes his work hit even harder this time around. I is like a psychedelic little daydream on the California coast, the sun shining and the waves slowly churning and feeling all of your senses blend into each other. “Lucy” is a personal favorite for this heady zone out, but “Yellow Soul” hits more modern pockets that vibe with my taste too. This project is just amazing from top to bottom and I can’t recommend it enough.
I’ll admit that I’m caught within the wondrous daydream that is SoCal. The weather is finally cooling off, the energy of people all around me seems to be more relaxed, it’s just a good time to be exactly where I’m at. I can finally exhale after a long summer and jam packed year and let these last few months coast on out like a message in a bottle floating off into the sea. I feel super fortunate to have this experience while I know other people are in panic mode with fires around the region, so I’m sending all my energy to those affected and hope everyone regardless of the area can reach their inner peace.
