Artist Of The Day: The Analog Affair

If absence makes the heart grow fonder, the proof is in long-distance duo The Analog Affair. Though Evan Baker and Cody Moser's latest EP Wild was written entirely via back-and-forth sessions, it's one of the most gorgeous, warm pop releases of the summer. The title track shows all of the duo's strengths: production rich with texture, tight but expansive songwriting in the vein of Two Door Cinema Club, and a woozy late-night atmosphere impossible not to lose yourself in. Even when The Analog Affair's exploring the darker corners of its sound, though, it never sounds cold or unsettling. The band does a fine job of using the current trends in pop music and reconstructing them to express a more unique sensibility — it's a sad place to be, maybe even a little lonely, but Wild suggests we'll all find a way to make it out of there.
