nehiyawak’s EP is a 3-track gem. The trio are aboriginal and they meld traditional music with modern pop in a very unique way. Rather than have the aboriginal elements stand alone and apart they are directly intermingled with the main music. In “Disappear”, for example, the vocals are indie pop, but you can hear the native influence in the resonance and cadence, while “Starlight” features a definite traditional beat. But none of this feels in the least bit contrived. Regardless of anything, this EP is simply high-grade, emotive modern music.
