Genres like electronica or synthwave have enjoyed a recent surge in popularity and relevance since the ‘Stranger Things’ craze. Any post-rock fan can tell you, it’s difficult to find good bands in an increasingly popular genre. Finding gems like Grids/Units/Planes becomes that much sweeter because of it.
“In Droves” is a sweet morsel of electronic goodness, with unmistakable influences from post-rock. Even if you don’t like most electronica, there’s a good chance this EP will resonate with you. It can be a bit too formulaic at times, but that also makes this EP easily accessible. The glitchy drums and unique textures make this EP a wonderful way to occupy the next 18 minutes of your life.
