EDITORS’ NOTES

With their debut, You Haunt Me, the Southern California trio Sir Sly join contemporary dark-groove operators like Broods, Banks, and MS MR, merging moody synths with booming beats for a crisp, alluring sound. Church organs mingle with a mechanical bassline on the single "Ghost," while "Gold" stomps and seethes, its reverb-heavy drums ringing out as vocalist Landon James' androgynous coo evokes '80s dance greats like OMD and Erasure. Mixing things up, the group splice acoustic guitars with drum machines on "Too Far Gone"; "Nowhere/Bloodlines Pt. 1" reaches Pink Floyd heights with its atmospheric coda. You Haunt Me is ambitious and confident.
