Even though they're from Detroit, there's something unshakably English about Explicits. The way they've managed to wrap old school post-punk in layers upon layers of synthy, spacey glow feels a little more mid-Atlantic than your run-of-the-mill bedroom pop. And unlike most genre dabblers, they don't feel constrained to the microcosmic. This cut off their upcoming release The Uncanny Valley
is about four times the length of your average lo-fi demo and sustains its momentum the entire time.
