This article should

begin with a rule:

if an artist

works with barnes blvd.,

I will always

check out

their future releases.

Such is the case

for Khai Dreams,

who I first heard

with the stand-out

single “Ultimately.”

Most recently,

the vocalist joined

forces with fellow

wordsmith Atwood

for the seven song EP

Nice Colors.

Fully produced by

Wizard Island and biskwiq,

it's a lively

and synth-layered

collaborative sunscape.

Something for the picnic,

for the pool party,

for the open road.

Each song tastes

just like summer.
