Last year, we enjoyed the debut album from the group Ants Ants Ants, “Why Why Why?” This family music band is based out of Oregon, lead by Johnny Clay, Nat Johnson and Dave Gulick. With many years of experience writing and performing music, they are back with The Robot EP. Their music is family friendly and entertaining, and something parents can enjoy alongside their children.
The songs on The Robot EP are not surprisingly robot-themed, and easy to listen to. The music is easy-going as well as fun in nature. The songs about a robot, with a look into his electronic life, whether he is dancing or taking on tasks. I enjoy the light, happy feelings that Ants Ants Ants have in their albums, and The Robot EP is no exception.
The four tracks on The Robot EP (released in July) demonstrate the signature harmonic pure-pop sound of Ants Ants Ants. “Robot Robot,” is jingly-jangly, hand-clappy tune asking, “Robot, can you hear me?” It’s a poignant refrain for our AI times, with all sorts of techno-buzzy sounds thrown in for fun. “Dance Robot Dance” imagines an electric boogie robot who’s a little weary after “dancing all night” at the disco. With nods to The Beatles, ELO and Nick Lowe, the dreamy “Robot Suite” continues the wonderment at the inner life of our electronic friend. A “Robot Reprise” ends the EP with a clear signal that there’s more imaginative fun ahead.
I love this first song from the Robot EP, which is nice and relaxing.
