Gawdie - EP1 (2020)


We had an argument about whether to tag this as a miscellany post, and ultimately we realize it maybe doesn't matter. Even though Gawdie's Sara Jean Hughes is now based in Montreal, we're calling this one ours. 

Getting out from behind the drum kit and eschewing the pop punk tendencies of her past bands Grown-Ups and Pre Nup, Gawdie sees Sara Jean Hughes exploring the realm of moody synth pop and electronica. Whispered vocals, traces of guitar, and minimalist synths carry these four short songs through bliss and just the right amount of tension (side two's "Maladaptive" is a standout). 

Get it from the Gawdie bandcamp.
