Funk, lo-fi, jazz, indie-pop, even a bit of R&B. Still Woozy’s debut project has it all. What sticks out the most in Lately is Sven Gamsky’s uncanny ability for his vocals come across not quite like he’s fully singing, but more like he’s just chatting with you, having a conversation across a card table. Nothing about this EP feels forced. Each lyric flows seamlessly into the next - just one good vibe after another. It’s a style that has become a staple of new age bedroom pop, and when combined with excellent underlying production (which Sven creates himself), Lately shows off a groove that is downright infectious. The biggest negative of this project is certainly its length - it’s comprised of only 5 tracks and totals just 13 minutes in play time, but its a beautiful 13 minutes at that. So Mr. Woozy … if you’re reading this … we want more!
Bonus Content: The music videos accompanying this EP are must-see-TV. Gamsky’s style is nothing short of eclectic and gives a glimpse into some of the inspiration behind his songwriting. Check the link for Habit’s music video and the rest of his channel for more!
