Chopin Jovi has a California surf sound, but from a colder, rockier coast, while giving nod to early ‘indie’ roots like Built to Spill or Pavement. Highwaving hooks you with its catchy melody and vocal ad libs. Marshmallow shows an inclination to jam while becoming an adventure in Jazz. Sky is the standout track with dreamy synths, dovetail groove, bass lines full of human warmth, and sweet baked-in vocals. Keep watch on Chopin Jovi as this gem begins to sparkle beneath that Jersey rough.
Favorite track: Sky.
