Alright fine, you caught us. We’re featuring another EP and not an album. WHATEVER, you’ll be happy we did. “are we?” is the latest masterpiece from California-based indie-pop duo, slenderbodies. This project is dreamy AF and primarily features the duo’s falsetto voices leading listeners into a hazy atmosphere of synthy goodness. Like many works over the past year, this EP was created in the midst of COVID lockdown, but instead of being quarantined together, Max and Benji were in separate cities. This forced the duo to adopt an atypical working style where they ended up sending each other voice memos and zoom recordings of songs in progress, with one picking up where the other left off. Despite their disjointed arrangement, the project comes across as seamless with each tune naturally transitioning into the next. So kick back, chill, and drift away into the dream-pop world of slenderbodies!
