The chill's the thing
Somewhere between laptop and electronic pop, the wires crossed. We Are Temporary uses a traditional lo-fi indie pop song structure, but the arrangements throw in all sorts of electronic goodies and a sweeping dark wave wash for good measure. Oh, and a decidedly sketchy (or simply human, depending on your perspective) set of vocals.
What I really like is that this isn't any particular style. The goth/dark wave elements, the laptop elements, the traditional electronic elements and the indie pop elements all combine into a mysterious swirling cloud. Each song leads the listener deeper into the abyss. And the sense of adventure always outweighs any trepidation.
There's a hypnotic underlying throb that ensnares with a silk noose. By the time it tightens, there is no resistance. Don't worry; you won't mind succumbing one bit.
This might well be music for the end of the world. Fine by me. I'm ready. Bring it on.
