The indie-pop duo released a new tune and their first collaboration with fellow Canadian musician The Desert Island Big Band on June 23rd of this year which has a captivating and dazzling quality and composition.

“6 Shooter” gets off right away with snappy guitar riffs and vintage synthesizers spinning around a funky synth melody. It’s a polished work with various layers of effects and an attractive symphony that catches the listener’s attention because “6 Shooter” builds a majestic climax of lovely tunes.The vocals of the artist on “6 Shooter” shine out like a diamond in a pervasive ambiance molded by the synth and percussion rhythm. The lyrics are expressive and they state the same thing several times, yet in different ways. As the song concludes, it leaves a perfect atmosphere that is worth keeping forward with. The process yields a striking reconstruction that is separate yet thematically akin to the initial.The Ottawa band balances each other in terms of importance by effect. Jayem and Ricky 100 create basic melodies and orchestration, while words are decorated with a coat of shimmery. With this track, they found their sound, a bit of a smokey/desert atmosphere, evoking The Killers and The War On Drugs, and it is derivative yet stands on the other side of the boundary. The song’s vocals and arrangement are excellent. It’s worth revisiting the song to hear the new sounds and hidden treasures in the melody.
