futuristic & sophisticated club lullabies, drawing equally from airy 90s r&b, lush dream pop & the powerful, bone-rattling immediacy of modern hip hop.

megan james’ remarkable voice is at once ecstatic & ethereal, soaring joyfully through corin roddick’s carefully chopped beats, trembling synths, & skewed vocal samples. this is no way feels like a first record from the halifax/montreal-based duo - its vocal hooks are inescapable, its lush production is sophisticated but also as pristine as anything on pop radio, deftly walking the lines between trap-rap exhilaration & otherworldly rapture, pleasure-centre pop & earnest emotion. "mixes 80s synthesiser pop swirls with plinky-plonky beats, shimmering, ghostly textures & odd but catchy tunes" 4/5 - guardian.
