Oliver are dance music’s funkiest space explorers. Their muscular, gleaming tunes swap EDM neon for airbrushed chrome, re-imagining the highways of Los Angeles as one long cosmic on-ramp. They follow up their Fool’s Gold debut Mechanical with the supremely confident Light Years Away (Out TOMORROW 9/9!) , a two-track EP showcasing the duo at their absolute best. The title track struts with a low-slung boogie, while “Fast Forward” takes off on a technicolor rocket of pulsing buildups and Daft-worthy solos. Light Years Away is one small step for man, one giant leap for the groove…
