The first track (entitled: 'Terracur') comes in strong with instantly solid vocal harmonies and a sparse production. It becomes clear quickly that this is a build as instruments begin to stack... suddenly however they let loose- a very catchy and seemingly sporadic (yet actually neatly organized) synth jingles in the left speaker, while a constant and thick bass leads the structure, there is a refrain, then a larger release. The track goes on like this, expanding in certain territories, but always managing to stay tight.
The second track brings it in a little... with an initial production that is a little more intimate. Vocals in this track are a bit more punchy, and eventually are incorporated in an instrumental manner (in the form of "oh oh ah ah"'s) . This track also features an undeniable vocal hook that chants "I have gone away for the weekend" with added urgency in each repetition.
Altogether the two tracks are enjoyable and very well put together. It will be interesting to hear what Social Studies will come up with in the form of a full record.
