Highlighting the more uplifting side of Sonna, "Kept Luminesce" and "Mirameko" are packed with gorgeous guitar hooks, intricate polyrhythms and charming vocals. The production is crisp and rich with buttery bass grooves grounding the whole mix of mellow pop perfection. Fusing moody textures and subtle melodic interplay, the songs drift and drive like Bedhead or Yo La Tengo with a quicker pulse. As brief as it may be, this single serves as an excellent teaser for the upcoming album. Typically known for being masters of lengthy sentimental soundscapes, this further proves that Sonna not only makes great sounds, they make great songs.
