Female-fronted group led by Chastity Ashley impresses us with the overall prowess of the production and arrangement of the tunes, whose orbit is in the EDM/dance pop universe. Such rich tones and bright, dazzling textures are achieved, and the percussion effects are weapons-grade. One downside, though, is that the liberally FX’d Chastity comes off as a featured singer backing up her band, as opposed to its focal point. That issue is corrected, however, on “Around The World,” where she invests tons more attitude into her vocal. Even the overly pounding bassbeat can’t quite overtake her, though it tries very hard. While we don’t hear any killer hooks, film/TV party/club scenes are a perfect fit for these songs.
