Little Chestnuts – Opal [EP]
Though their music has an electronic feel to it, it is definitely not as lo-fi as the album cover may indicate. Electro-pop-rock is what you’re in for here, with an intelligent blend of minimalism and atmosphere. There is never a huge wall of sound pumping out of your speakers, but that doesn’t restrict the music or its impact. The vocals took me a minute to warm up to, they felt a little…off for lack of a better word. But by the time the second track “Reflection” hit, I was completely on board with Little Chestnut’s overall sound, vocals included. A nice little 4-song release, I’m looking forward to hearing more from these guys.
