Carry You To My Mouth is the Mush debut from Está Vivo. The four track ep spans styles ranging from inspired indie-rock to tropical-folk to beautifully restrained hazy acoustic ballads with elements that remind of The Magnetic Fields, Spiritualized, Love And Rockets, and The English Beat. Está Vivo’s lyrics lend a sophistication to the bedroom-pop production and naturally delivered deep vocals. Whether writing about an infatuation with someone he sees on the street each day or slyly working “Friday I’m in Love” into a song about a girl he meets at a party because it is the first song that they dance to, the lyrics are equal parts charming, carefree, biting and subversive. With productions that range from elegant and sublime to dark and foreboding, Carry You To My Mouth is a genre collision of experimental and pop sensibility.
