magik+mayhem - Area27

If Adam Levine became a woman, this is the sexy voice and sound he'd be creating. Area27 is the California based electro-pop-rock outfit that tours the west coast.

Songs like Black Sun and Circles bring the groove based rock while lifting Shalien's vocals in the mix to its proper place. Other works like Wild Card play out like a Radiohead track mixed with breathy and haunting vocals.

All in all, the production quality of magik+mayhem is stellar. The seductive vocals are magical and work seamlessly in their writing. Two big thumbs up!

RATING: 4.5 of 5 stars
