EDITORS’ NOTES

Guillaume and Jonathan Alric’s debut album is named after the dancing space, not the Jamaican music genre, but you’ll hear hints of dub reggae and electro in their lullabies. The Paris-based cousins tend to bundle their influences in warm house beats, patient arrangements, and yearning vocals that sound like distorted, distant weeping. The result can sometimes be sparkling and euphoric, like the gently rocking “PLACES,” or it can be dark and transfixing, like the throbbing pulse in “RUNAWAY.” But it’s always more headphone introspection than nightclub escapism that ties the album together and sets the duo apart. “FACES,” the project’s lone instrumental, was one of The Blaze’s earliest tracks. “To have that kind of emotion,” they told Beats 1 host Hanuman Welch of the song, “it’s a bit different. It’s more a kind of—how do you say?— growing up.”
