If you missed it, listen to their exclusive mix for FADER.

Critics have weighed in on the new release:

“Kastlander has a voice as warm and fragile as any in independent music, but she’s just as inclined to infuse it with hip-hop’s braggadocio.”

The FADER

“… when they’re able to scale that wall and dance with the stars, the album’s a treat.”

Pitchfork

“The new album flexes huge melodies and big feelings, and every song feels like a finely sculpted top-40 single in a more hazed-out reality than the one we currently occupy.”

Stereogum

“Their refined blend of yearning bedsit indie pop and sleek 80s soul is meticulously smooth.”

The Guardian

“reminiscent of Beach House’s darkly quixotic work, saturated with fragility and painful longing.”

Pitchfork

“Shades of The xx and a softer Grimes while sounding more interesting than your regular synth pop clones.”

NME
