Featuring delicate acoustic guitar work and a clear sense of conceptual progression throughout, Varsity Dropout’s new EP starts off strongly and continues to wrap its melodies and heartfelt intentions around listeners throughout.
Kiss You Longer starts things off and balances gentle rhythms with equally soft vocals, intimate ideas, and that uniquely raw live guitar sound for purity of style.
Auto-tune makes an appearance for the contemporary twang, and things progress through various production realms that continue to pay tribute to classic pop and modern RnB alike. Always the mood is mellow, the stories personal, and the build-ups and drops subtle yet effective – particularly on a notably catchy and bright What You Want; a definite highlight, and something of a humble ear-worm.
Offering questions and a clear search for understanding and connection, A Millennial Love Story: Kiss You Longer is all at once easy going and complex – reaching out for answers yet utilising a certain calm energy to keep things on that late-night contemplative vibe. Nicely done.
