2. Good Faith (2019)
“Super lovely album! One of the biggest masterpieces of 2019, and truly, one of the best albums of the last decade, even though it came out at Nov. 2019. I love these songs way too much, Miracle and Heavy With Hoping are surreal”
1. Adventure (2015)
“This kid is fantastic. A new favorite. If passion pit and Nero had a baby. Closest comparison would be Nero in that it is a thematic techno odyssey of an album. This is more pop sweetness than Nero in a really good way. Outstanding debut. I will be watching closely how this guy develops. Brilliant!”
