Dawkins delivers blissful reverb drenched indie on debut EP

Dawkins delivers blissful reverb drenched indie on debut EP

Existing somewhere in that sphere of experimental indie pop that contains Animal Collective and Neon Indian, Dawkins' Ep1 is a quality release that steers clear of being a cheap knockoff of the reverb drenched, chaotic sound that has made other groups famous.   Although not flawless, the group's first release achieves some really great moments, like at the 1 minute mark in Kiwi, where the chorus all of a sudden bursts through in a great moment of catharsis. At times blissfully harmonious with the pumping, youthful energy of indie pop, Ep 1 is a wonderful start for the group.
