WHAT IT IS: Highlights, the band’s first collection of new material since their critically lauded debut, Mixed Emotions in 2012, began in a basement in Pittsburgh and ended in a church in Brooklyn. The album, produced by Chris Taylor (Grizzly Bear), trades world music sounds for a more alive, realized approach, the result of Emm and Cohen knowing they wanted to break from their “two guys, one screen” writing style. Influenced by their time spent on the road touring Mixed Emotions, they reached for the sounds of ’90s New York hip-hop drums, Detroit techno synths and lots and lots of guitars.
