Ridiculously good. This record needs to grab some attention. So many intricacies and great melodies.

I don't think he's been a full time member for a while, but I'm pretty sure he helped out on this one in some capacity.

Who does the vocals on this album? I know this is a Graduate off-shoot, but is it the same vocalist? Sounds very similar if not...

Chris Rhein, who happens to be the only member who wasn't in the Graduate. Great singer though.

Ah, thanks. Yeah, I'm really enjoying it. I've given a cursory listen to a few songs by these guys before, but this is the first time I've really listened, if that makes sense.

This is fun. Sounds a bit different than The Graduate, and Bad City. Great songwriters up in here. Getting a bit of a Phil Collins vibe in parts. Maybe a bit of Mutemath, even some John Mayer on "Into the Unknown." Cool! I'll keep listening.

I'm listening to it right now again, and again, it's really good, getting more summerish vibes out of this one.. And that record could please a lot of people, besides some obvious influences sometimes I hear Vacationer, sometimes M83, the similiarities might be small but the record is pretty diverse for mostly synth tunes.
