Although it being his first EP release under the Infinite Bisous moniker, McCarthy is no newcomer to the scene, having played bass and guitar for alt-pop nobility such as Mac DeMarco and Connan Mockasin. Do not be fooled, however, into believing that Infinite Bisous is just another attempt at copying the styles of his immensely successful bandmates, even though there are similarities to be found.
On the contrary, Infinite Bisous’ music stands very steadily on its own legs, forming an intimate and nostalgic universe in which post-breakup traumas and early sexual encounters make out the metaphysical dimensions. The lo-fi production paired with McCarthy’s tender voice makes for a great match, skilfully portraying the emotional repercussions of living in a world where people fail to communicate their true feelings to each other.
Needless to say, with this absolute gem of an EP we cannot wait to hear the full-length album, which McCarthy has stated will be out in the near future. In the meantime, you can find more of his music on Soundcloud or Bandcamp as well as follow Infinite Bisous on Facebook and Instagram. You can also buy his releases here.
