The EP will do well on the dance floor, with each track locked into a satisfying pump. "Piano Touch," the track with the strongest ideas, is a suave banger with hints of acid's menace and a sexy piano line slipped into its driving beat. "Short Wave" is full of glistening arps and a soaring motion (though a similarly transient track from last year, "Over Peover," feels more epic without the bouncy thud).
"FWP" is Taylor's house throb at its driest. Sure, it's danceable, but the track's tacky turbo claps and deep bassline are unexciting. The core sounds on "No Matter" are even less original—a digital vocal synth preset and a plastic bass tone. After a lengthy, drumless build up, the track drops into a kind of cutesy electro beat. Earlier in Taylor's career, you might've said he's exploring diverse tastes, but now it sounds like the generic version of a once-inspired approach.
