Niagara – “Hyperocean”

Niagara is a duo who have been pioneering experimental pop music for a minute now, and “Hyperocean” is their third studio album. This album is easily their most experimental to date, as it combines alternative electronica, dark-tinted psych-funk, sweeping electronic arrangements, insanely sputtering rhythms, and BOOMING electronics. The track list flows between an eerie calm, and violent waves with textured synths and fluid basslines. Each track bridges the arc between serenity and calamity, and it’s lovely.
