The One Am Radio A Name Writ In Water
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Level Plane
The second full-length from this outfit is aptly-titled: its shifting styles and fluid melodies are hard to pin down, a dreamy mix of vocals, guitars, synths, violins, and ambient beats. Bandleader Hrishikesh Hirway brings in guest musicians to add weight to the spare and dispassionate vocals and the result is both lush and thoughtful. Highlights include "Lucky," where a string-backed Hirway croons about not accidentally driving off a cliff, and "Fever Dream," where the delicate guitar sustains Hirway as he sings about memory and desire. The effect is lingering like sleep, and just as enigmatic.
