Another strong showing from Crawling Vines, “EKG” embraces a ’90s alt-rock ethos in its nonchalant vocal melodics and gripping guitar tones, touting a range of twangy contemplation and textured distortion alike. An initial daze presents with acoustic undercurrents, traversing into a second half ripe in blistering distortion — before a tranquilly compelling finish, wrapping up this stellar success. The Chicago-based project continues to impress, catching our ears in prior months with singles like “Best Part” and the Melting Resonance collab “surround me!”
