"...Westkust's 2015 debut album features an indelible shoegaze hue that is never far from the colour palette of this noisy, adrenaline-rush of an album, that has at its focus the joyous boy-girl harmonies of Gustav Andersson and Julia Bjernelind. A worthy addition to any record collection..."
I DON'T KNOW WHY (ha) I didn't give this album more of a chance when it dropped! Once I approached this album with a more open mind (not comparing it too much to their earlier work) I realized it was quite brilliant and charming in it's own right.
Favorite Track: "Don't Know Why" Steven Reichling
Theres such a strong mix of lush instrumentation, dynamic vocals, and sentimental lyrics its hard to find a track I didn't enjoy. Both the vocals and instrumentation swing from warm (Spring) and folksy (What It Is) to aetherial (Lark), dramatic (All Mirrors), and at times a little retro (Chance). Tye
