As summer gradually comes to an end with students returning to school and the night encroaching on the long summer days we’ve grown so attached to in recent months, let’s wave bon voyage to the season with just the right soundtrack. Based out of Sanford, Florida, Case Work is the indie pop project of Chandler Strang. On Case Work’s free to download self-titled EP, you’ll find plenty of hearty cheers and talk of sunshine but like all timeless summer music, Case Work understands that summer is ephemeral. The track “Amazon” might open with guitars so bright you have to wear shades but it ends with a moody, almost post-punk coda. By simply comparing the energetic and unhinged vocal delivery of the opener “Slow (Down, Start Living More)” to the more subdued (but still effervescent) vocals on the closing track “Horizon Glow,” it’s evident that Case Work had a sense of progression in mind when creating this record. Nevertheless, if you’re in the market for music that can simultaneously capture the best of summer in sonic form while easing you into fall, look no further than Case Work.
