pkwy, the US slacker-rock quartet, released their début EP – Giant – yesterday.
Their music is marked by the slow measured pace, which even when they are in hurrying mood, minds of a sloth hanging around in the trees, with a calmness spreading through the room.
It is the laid-back thread of the tracks that holds the listener attentive as they offer variations of the theme in both compacted texturing and fence-net sparsity with a wistful melancholic undertow.
A five track release, best enjoyed at dusk laying around a campfire on the beach, (available on bandcamp), which has compelling magnetism leaving the listener wishing it ran for longer than its roughly fourteen minutes.
The opener and title track Giant – being my pick of the release.
