Behavior: New York Times

New York Times Cover Art

New York Times is the latest EP from NYC dream pop trio Behavior. The five tracks have a lo-fi production texture, heavy reverb on out back vocals and up front synths. The guitars supply wondeful accents and harmonies with interesting phrasing. While the drums are prominent, the bass is, unfortunately, largely lost in the mix. There is a distinct post-punk influence on New York Times and a generally edgier feel than one would find from California dream pop bands. Given the dirth of beach music this year, Behavior are a welcome change that shows the genre has more legs to it. Stream and download New York Times at the link below.
