"Marona and Hotel Colors capture the power of minimalism in their recently released split. The six tracks bring to mind the melancholy and ennui characteristic of the college age experience in America."
"Whack World isn’t just a collection of songs or another complicated concept album. It’s quick. It’s strange. It’s completely enthralling. It is a cinematic art piece full of eccentric colors and stylistic choices both in vision and audio."
"With its seamless merging of the brash and sometimes gloomy shoe-gaze instrumentals and indie-pop melodies, the record is able to take on a mind of its own, way beyond a 12 song tracklist or top layer musicality. It has one experiencing a steady plane of a soft daze that lasts well-after the record's end."
"From start to finish it fills the air with an assortment of sounds. It’s a rollercoaster that locks the straps down and wants to take its riders on two, three or even four more rides. "
" The songs feel like shared memories that are being recalled together. You almost don't feel weird about genuinely answering the questions posed by the lyrics."
"Prass’ ability to feature a healthy balance of both political and personal issues into The Future and The Past is impressive- never faltering or losing the lush musicality with these debates."
"The message of Peach seems to battle growing pains and struggles realizing that sometimes faith cannot and will not be able to wear the armor for you. Lester makes a point, though, through the bittersweet nature of the tracks, to thank her bruises and scars for being an integral part in shaping her into the woman she is as she sings each word. "
Slow Buzz is a hodge-podge of contrasting vibes that resonate with the out-of-balance energy a breakup brings. The beats of happiness are drowned out by the painful melancholy of packing yourself up and away from someone, allowing the album to be full of tracks that universally pull at the heartstrings.
" It feels as though the bulk of the record was written while lying on the bedroom floor, strumming the guitar, and ranting about the day’s pint-up frustration in melody form. You feel included in this, almost like you’re lying on the bed reinforcing the process as they trail off about how much life and money and mental health can suck."
" Anyone fond of crashing drums, fast-paced rhythms, and raw-cut vocals will be satisfied with the EP and excited for the band’s future work. In Shallow Waters is unpolished. It’s raw. It’s loud. It’s strong. It’s everything needed to make a solid record in the scene."
