ABR ― Lia (vocals, guitar, programming), David (vocals, guitar, drums, programming), and Éloi (vocals, keys, drums, programming) ― have been quietly coming up with some seemingly unassuming, subdued pop, that underneath its, well, quietness, radiates with some brilliant melodies that defy genre categorization, and ranging from pure pop to folk and jazz, often within a single song.
It is all there, with some discreet, charming intimacy, and a penchant for musical details with the trio’s vocals and harmonies carrying the torch. With such an approach, Glossover is one of those albums that keep on revealing its delicate layers with every play. Afternoon Bike Ride delivered a true delight.
