DAVIDS - 0613EP

I know very little about Canadian Synth Pop project DAVIDS. Aside from what can be heard, the only thing that's certain is that it's not Davids and it's certainly not David's. With such limited background, there's not much else to do but to give it all an unbiased listen. I like the idea, myself.

If you're digging the vague binge, stop reading and enjoy the music video below. If you're a rebel, know you're listening to one of the many styles heard on the album. Don't be too stingy about your tastes right now, you might miss out.

There is a well positioned turning point at 2:21 that makes the whole Pop surface worth it to me. It's that brief moment of refreshing '80s air that gives the track balance. It's the spark of yin in its yang. Everything else is just decent production and silky vocals.

A little more mainstream than I usually get into, but the rest of the EP makes up for it. Influences from the same era, from the same electronically raw backgrounds. The Rock and Roll mentality passively expressing itself somewhere in the background.

0613EP creates one of the few occasions where I can listen and tolerate something that I'm negatively biased about. I can not say I'm in love with the concoction, but I can definitely say it's a damn fine display of talent. The very least you could do is give each song a few seconds of your time. It won't take two minutes.

If you need any motivation, the EP is a name-your-price download. It's an encouraged free download, so don't bother feeling guilty. Add it to your collection; let its diversity sink in. When you're feeling thankful, check the Facebook, Twitter, and Soundcloud.

  1. I enjoyed it but not totally in love with it. The touch of 80's is nice.

  2. There was a distinct 80's vibe to this song. I don't know if it was you suggesting it, me hearing it, or me seeing it (the singer looking vaguely like Flock of Seagulls and the album like Addicted to Love) but, yep, it was there and of course, I love it!!
