Their five-track EP, Portal, is best described by the feelings it evokes in the listener as they drift from track to track, carried through the project by its seamless production and rich vocals. Each song is similar enough to make the project cohesive, yet different enough to feel varied, and from its punchy feel-good opener, Gold, to The Look, the duo’s Soda-State-ified Metronomy cover, the entire EP wouldn’t sound out of place playing through the radio of a retro convertible gliding between rows of Hollywood palms and off into the sunset. Its closing track, Portal, feels like you never stopped driving. Now, you’re drifting between neon-lit buildings, through the portal and off to find some unknown party in the night. Portal is both an apt name for the project, and for its finishing track, given that we joined M and Tracie as they took us through their own portal, headfirst, into the Soda State.
