Teen Daze could be accused of opportunism, were it not for his explication of his motives (given without being prompted). After surfacing with a mini album –“Four More Years” (Wonder Beard/Arcade Sound, 2010)– full of synthetic pop with obvious chill-wave tendencies, the Canadian now gives us “Beach Dream”, a four-track EP that is much less electronic and much more based on percussion and guitars, testament to his “fan-like” feelings. In his own words: “ I really came to fall in love with the whole lo-fi pop scene this summer, and I wanted to see what I could come up with. I know it’s starting to get cold, and that carefree love songs about beach life may seem out of context, but I hope that you guys can look back on your past summer, and let these songs remind you of some of the good experiences you had! ” The EP has been available since last Tuesday on Teen Daze’s Bandcamp page. Now it’s up to you if you want to pay for the download: from 0 to infinity, anything goes.
