This is one of those rare albums that sound both new and incredibly familiar. Kazar finds the sweet spot between indie pop, funk, singer songwriter, and rock. It’s a delightful blend, with each song seeming to have its own distinct sonic profile. When my mind starts to ping between sounds as wide ranging as the Taking Heads or the Laurel Canyon scene at its peak wistful melancholy, I like very much where I end up. Which, here, is a rock solid collection of songs that take you on a journey from the past into the future. “Making time to live my life, making time for you and me.” Kazar sings on the aptly titled “No Time for Eternity”. So, basically: be here now, and check out Due North. You won’t regret it!
