Luxurious laziness

Porches, Pool (Domino) Throughout Pool, tracks bleed into one another, filled with dark synth wave cascades, heavy bass lines, and catchy, melancholy lyrics. Treading between pop nostalgia and post punk emo, Porches submerges listeners in detached dance ballads like “Apart”, “Car” and “Glow.” Aaron Maine’s obsession with reflection imputes itself into the albums deep synths. Take a step back from the guitar driven and folk inspired sounds, and you'll find that the pairing of Maine’s eerie vocals and suspended hyper-masculine lyrics with the inspired cozy, comfortable, and often sketchy New York nu wave sound, is why Porches' Pool wades in its own luxurious laziness.— Casey Jeanite
