Throughout Grown Alone, its latest effort, Amazing Twin articulates a true fusion of lo-fi pop, garage rock and Elephant 6-era psychedelia. "Gray to Have Eyed" sounds like a reverb-drenched pop song, but just over a minute before the end of the song, the band fuses all of the sounds together for a noisy finale. In that way, this release is reminiscent of Deerhunter's excellent Fluorescent Grey EP. Like that record, this one is rich with quality songwriting. The hypnotic melodies on "Want's Yard Is Dry Air" create a subtle but vivid contrast to the earnest vocals alongside them, while "No Thin Serial" ends the EP on a breezy, propulsive note, leaving you wondering how it could possibly be the end.
