mAsis | Kennesaw EP
Back in February, Glendale’s mAsis released the single, “Make Me Higher”, a soft slow-jam with quiet electronics and gorgeous high falsetto. That single is the lead to a new three-song EP called “Kennesaw”. The new tracks, “Pop Rocks” and “Salt” are just as good. The former is a more sultry, electronic R&B style reminiscent of some of the more sensual jj tracks. It’s a relationship song fueled by these sweet lyrics: “Take off your shoes at the door / Come and lay with me / I have something to say / Don’t walk out the door / You’ll be making the biggest mistake …” Where “Pop Rocks” stands out as a moody and atmospheric song, “Salt” is a bit more visceral, about the velvety vocal stylings, upbeat tempo and musical transitions. It’s a beautiful beginning for a group that seemed to come from out of nowhere. — David D. Robbins Jr.
