If The Wave Loves Two Suns
Amida records music on this EP that sounds happily indie. It's tuneful, but has a distinctly independent flavour and clear vocals.
"These Are Golden Times" meanders thoughtfully like House of Love used to. "You've Changed, Baby Girl" has a typically non-sunny lyric set to a sunny tune,
with something of Velvet Underground's shambling sound circa their third album. The singer has a dry-Reed-like delivery working throughout. "Beauty Fades" is
a boisterous wannabe-Pixies song in a short burst. We end on a more tuneful vibe, and hope the band records more EPs like this one.
