Portal Party by 26 BATS!

portal party


Portal Party, the third album from Minneapolis-based 26 BATS!, is a marked shift from the jazz and r&b-inspired sounds of their previous records, Onyx and Cave Cuts. Portal Party sees the band taking more risks with unconventional song structures and layering their songs with autotune, drum loops, and synths. At its core, Portal Party is a testament to the band’s penchant for a genre-less sound and their charming lyricism covering subject matter as familiar as yearning and as obscure as portals and magic.
