The term “dark alien pop” is ideal for Jalal Andre’s Seattle-based project, which is aurally ambitious, full of throbbing synths and electro textures that course through the artist’s subterranean vision. What stands out on “Entanglement” are the lead vocals, bringing a really unusual tone to the table. The song lacks a great hook and could deliver more of a climax, but its production, like the rest of the ‘Bots’ tracks, is rich, multi-layered and involving. “Dream About Nothing” slows the tempo nicely, but its downstroked guitar does not deliver an especially catchy hook. Neither does the sad, downcast “World of Curls”; it’s the act’s best, catchiest song overall, but once again the tech overshadows the tune.
