an infectious collection that still bears Rouse’s distinct fingerprints, even as it pushes his limits with songs that are both cinematic and enveloping; each creating its own entrancing world out of dense synthesiser textures and shimmering electric guitar lines.

Trading in his acoustic guitar for a keyboard, he began experimenting with a new sonic palette; one inspired by everything from ‘80s sophisti-pop and late-career Leonard Cohen to British indie rock and New York new wave. On the ominous “Salton Sea,” Rouse’s smooth, warm vocals represent a distinctly human element awash in an ocean of manipulated tones, while the Tears For Fears-esque shuffle “Businessman” finds him capturing the loneliness of isolation in an era of constant connectivity, and the winsome title track charts the ups and downs of a relationship that can feel more digital than physical.
