As the production team behind some of fellow Connecticut resident Left Leberra's stranger tracks, Northern Lights established a pretty strong and very unique blippy, plodding electro aesthetic. Their own EP covers some of the same ground musically but also finds them touching on chunkier sample driven territory. And though its title evokes strong memories of a certain pre-fame but no less insufferable Black Eyed Peas song (one which will not be linked), FallenUp reveals the trio to be pretty adept emcees in their own right. It should sit comfortably in playlists alongside recent efforts from loosely sympathetic eccentrics Danny Brown and Main Attrakionz.
