Summer Moments EP

Summer Moments EP by Great Skies   (July 30, 2011)

I cannot tell a lie.  Todays electronica (or what one might call ‘chillwave’) is all very much the same.  Textures with beats and a lead; some clever editing and let’s call it a day.  If that were our only criteria for ‘good’ we’d be posting 15 electronica albums every day.  Summer Moments by Great Skies goes above and beyond. Creating a pop-like buzz that sticks in your head with the chillwave conventions, you might find yourself making up your own words and singing along. The album certainly comes off with a cookie cutter vibe at first, but this writer begs you: please at least make it through ‘Festival’ (when Great Skies really clears the clouds, showing greater understanding of timbre and placement).  From the netlabel Cut, who’s website holds more wonders.
