Love is a strong word, so let's say I grew infatuated. The recent mood might have something to do with it, but the talent is obvious. The aim is a relaxed approach at deep thinking combined with a very alternative Pop.
Tessellate is one of their sound defining tracks, with influences and ideas coming from way too many directions to count. Give it a listen.This one is definitely one of the more generic tracks on the album. Now you just keep that in mind as you listen to those lyrics and try to decipher what it means. It's gonna take a few minutes.
Needless to say the lyrics are quality, but after a single listen I couldn't understand that and instead enjoyed them for other reasons.
The vocal melodies are beautiful, the instruments compete. The percussion, especially on this track, also does a fine job of over-complicating something simple and creating an amazing sound regardless.
They take little risks here and there that could easily go wrong but did everything in their favor instead, and that's what could set these guys apart from the rest real quick.

It comes on strong, and it's complicated. So complicated, that on the Soundcloud stream for the album they took the time to explain what every song worth mentioning was about. That's just about every track; by the way.
The diversity in song inspiration ranges from children's books to Léon: The Professional and everything in between. The stream will be worth it for their explanations if nothing more.
Now the rest of their Soundcloud has even more music, so be sure to check that out after you're done repeating An Awesome Wave.
