After releasing a number of live tracks on their previous EP
, State of Mind’s latest studio album emphasizes the human element, employing a looser and more casual playing style.
Whether it’s the upbeat pop of “Two Months in a Sunday,” the bluesy groove of “How to be like me” or the moody drone of “Rendered Obsolete”, this more analog approach gives the album more of a live feel – while the band is still creating their playful soundscapes around Kim Bülow Bonfils’ songs.
“Chorus of Disapproval” once again turns themes of darkness and melancholia into irresistible melodic hooklines.
