Before immersing oneself in the vastly ambient “N.W.T.A” off Ghost & The City‘s Time, one should note that this is only the band’s second effort. Kia Fay, Will Jenkins, and Ash Maynor create a lush bouquet of complementary textures with a composure that long outmeasures their time as a band.

The Oakland trio’s sophomore EP, which received production treatment from Eki Ahara, will be self-released March 30. Including the brass stylings of Ross Eustsis, the work is a full-bodied taste of electronic soul that is sure to please.

Taking part in the upcoming Noise Pop Festival, G&TC will open the evening for Shabazz Palaces on February 21.
