For me, music is more than just art. Music is more of a force, able to stir one's emotions, awaken one's senses, and unite people under a common denominator. It is an essential part to my life.

Cruiser is the solo project of Philadelphia native Andy States, who started his work in a walk-in closet. It's from these demos that he caught the interest of Jeremy Park, who produced Youth Lagoon's wonderful The Year of Hibernation. As a result, he offered to produce State's EP, which ended up being the Cruiser EP that was released on May 28th of this year. As it has been stated, the purpose of Cruiser is to make you feel good, and with summery, beachy melodies embracing the whole release, it's hard not to have a smile on your face. The friendly guitar lines and giddy rhythms are easy to soak up, making the 6-song EP an absolute delight to get through. Something else that will make you smile is that the EP is offered at a name-your-price basis at Bandcamp, so head over there and grab that. For a sneak peak at what he has to offer, I've put the opener "The Fritz" below to check out. Enjoy everyone!
