Released:
Label: Not Not Fun
At first blush, So Unreal is simply a lo-fi reimagining of new wave. This impression deepens with repeated spins. The beats and synths echo wearily, as if they're crushed by the weight of their own nostalgia. Amanda Brown, who fronts Pocahaunted as well, sounds genuinely dazed and confused. Her voice floats through that echo but fails to find anything real to cling to. On "How Would U Know," she dismantles the very notion of self through a repeated perversion of the title: "You could be anyone. How would I know? How would I know? How would I know?"
