Sitting here frustrated by technology and looking for something to get my mind off that madness; no sense in dwelling in anger. The thing is, CELS is a solid way out, an imminently danceable, darkly ambient, R&B bopper that bobs where it should weave and vice versa. You don’t see the changes coming. This is pop music made by someone with an ear for the craft and an interest in making something somehow simultaneously outside of the box and accessible all the same. You can hear elements of Phoenix, The Weeknd, and ol’ MJ himself here, filtered through fat synths and the kind of beats that’ll make you move. How can you be in a bad move when you’re feeling the funk?
