EP of the Week: Kalin & Myles – “Chase Dreams”
Mon, 23 Jun 2014 11:38:12
Our "EP of the Week" for this week is Kalin and Myles’ irresistible Chase Dreams. It dropped last week, but we promise it'll be at the top of your playlist for quite some time to come. The Northern California twosome manage to integrate wily hip-hop flavor, a nod to the nineties R&B heyday, and sunny, simmering pop into a collection of songs that’s instantly unforgettable.
Whether it’s the snazzy almost-reggae guitar shining through "Ordinary Girl" coupled with a big, bold falsetto, the club-ready come hither bounce of "Got You", or the unshakable heart-stealing bliss of the first single "Love Robbery", there’s nobody smoother than Kalin and Myles. At the same time, they can deliver a subtlely and playfully ratchet booty dropper like "Go to Work" or get downright wild on the dance floor with their own "Do My Step".
Still, when the boys really rise to the status of pop leaders, it’s on the heartfelt "Nobody But You", which shimmies from a synth chug into a shimmering refrain that’s elegantly soulful. Ultimately, Kalin and Myles stand out in every aspect. They write and produce their own material, and they’ve got immense talent that icons are made of. Chase Dreams is just the start though, and it’s as wonderful of an introduction as is possible.
