We’ve got a midweek treat for you on the site today, in the form of New Yorker Ryan Work’s new EP. As Fair Visions, he released his debut EP A Way Out last August, and its follow-up displays impressive growth over little more than a year. Anyone who’s on board with contemporaries Nation of Language will feel right at home with his expressive synth-pop sound.
We’re especially partial to its title track and the six-minute house-flecked floorfiller ‘Channel’ if you’re looking for places to start; the entire 6-song collection is premiering on Backseat Mafia today, and Work isn’t exactly slowing down in the meantime; he’s, er, at work on the project’s forthcoming debut album, slated for next year. Modern Kids is an ideal primer for it; tune in below.
