If I had to give Pacific Air's debut album Stop Talking a one word review, it would quite simply be 'cheerful'. Obviously I'm here to give more insight than that, but if you like happy, cheery, summery music; Stop Talking is perfect for you.
Having grown out of their old shell / band name KO KO, brotherly duo Pacific Air finally released their debut album this week off the back of the incredible internet success of singles "Float" and "Lose My Mind".
The eleven concise tracks span little over 40 minutes; however in that short amount of time, it's easy to catch sight of the summery glimmer that the bands indie-pop strives to create. Album opener "Lose My Mind" instantly sets the tone, infusing pumping synth lines with wispy sing-along vocals that's funky groove is irresistible. Flowing straight into "Float" (arguably their most popular single to date), the band’s breezy attitude loses a little of its initial urgency, but alternatively flourishes in a contrastingly chilled, fuzzy manner.
Keeping the listener’s attention lock-in, new single "Move" and the uber-catchy "Suits" are perfect pop jaunts that’s catchy melodies and sun-drenched guitars and synths quite simply radiate warmth. Interweaving these pop belters, the low-key "Intermission" and album closer "So Strange" delicately show-off the melodic intricacies and fantastic riffs and hooks that make Pacific Air's music so easy to listen to.
Like a warm hug, Stop Talking glides by in style. Stream the entire album below!
