There's something about this EP of atmospheric, hard-to-pigeonhole electronica from Barcelona-based Sunny Graves that makes it strangely addictive. The thing is, it's rather hard to pinpoint exactly what. Maybe it's the spiraling synthesizers and wall-of-sound production of opener "Spring (Slow Return)", or the wide-eyed shimmer of the near Balearic "Bayou". It could be intense chords and restless cymbals of "Ghosts", or even the topsy-turvy, horror-influenced swoon and Space Dimension Controller style synth work of "Drawing Hands in Soft Light". In some ways, it doesn't matter. Whatever the underlying reason, the Bayou EP is well worth repeat listens. Given its quality, it's a surprise that Sunny Graves hasn't released more.
