GRANIT | Granit EP
Barcelona’s upbeat dream-pop duo Cristina and Alba are Granit, a pairing that sounds a bit like a Catalan version of Beach House and Sleep ∞ Over, with their woozy textures and blurry resonance. Floating is the aesthetic, created through dark melodies, reverb vocals, and overlapping harmonies. Their self-titled four-song EP is complexly arranged, but each track is so catchy. The songs tread the heavens with shimmering keyboard and lush vocals, and yet retain an earthy feel through delicate, lovelorn pop tunes. The record is available as a limited edition 10-inch (only 300 copies) you can buy from the artists, which also includes a digital download code. Follow the band at facebook and twitter. — David D.
