no suits Keep It Casual on Debut 'Virgin' EP [Premiere]
"4 Virgins make an EP" reads the subject line of the email sent to me by no suits' Max Pierro. His group, an LA-based four-piece forged of a childhood promise "to never wear a suit to work." had just cut their debut project, Virgin. I'm not one who would typically respond to random solicitation, but this felt wholesome. And the EP knocks.
For a group that prides themselves on keeping it casual, the four-track outing bears marked sophistication, opening with the fuzzy r&b number "Queens," where the group's new-guys-who-like-old-shit M.O. first crystallizes. "I'm Good" follows through with smooth stoner laments over wispy six-strings and ice-cold synths. "Ten Out Of Nine," the project's smoldering two-stepper, is fine-tuned for those night-time-is-the-right-time moments. Virgin's wonky and slightly cheese-and-corn closer, "Man In Tie Dye," is the group finally showing its age, but there's surprising depth to its pop efforts.
