Exit Kid - Basis

Exit Kid - Basis
Exit Kid’s latest is just three songs and just under ten minutes long, and yet still manages to pack a world of fun. It’s a Polaroid picture of an EP, really - a perfectly-captured handful of moments laden with nostalgia, with just enough glare in the shot to show you that there’s a lot more going on than may first meet the eye. Across the three songs, there’s a notable amount of variety. ‘This I Know’ is fuzz-pop in its purest form, as bright and buzzy as it comes, whereas the title track tries out a lot more instrumental development with a helping of atmospheric orchestration and blue-skies ambience - and then the punk vibes of ‘We’re Strange’ provides the end credits that just beg for a slow fade with its euphoric chorus and laissez-faire countermelodies. It’s impossible to reach the end of ‘Basis’ and not really want more.
