“The palette of sounds on Wala Gum’s (aka Sean Stynes) debut EP, “Big Posie,” is otherworldly. From the distant opening chords of “Shark Attack” to the fuzz-driven riffing that concludes the title track, the EP is completely immersive. Written and recorded entirely by Stynes, the indie-rock tunes on “Big Poise” are fueled by smooth guitars and ethereal synthesizers. But there’s just as much to marvel at in terms of songwriting. These five songs contain an album’s worth of feeling, with lyrics and arrangements that ground and make whole such ambitious soundscapes.” – Devin Anderson (Local Spins)
