Styrofoam
A Thousand Words Nettwerk

Styrofoam - A Thousand Words
Styrofoam has built a solid reputation on blending indie music with electronica. But on A Thousand Words, his sixth full-length, he mixes in another interesting element: pop. The eleven tracks on the album are uptempo and lively; you’ll find yourself tapping your foot, bobbing your head, and singing along. And speaking of singing, there’s much more of that than fans might be accustomed to. According to the artist, Arne van Petegem, he has finally grown out of being “the shy electronic guy afraid of singing,” and for that, we can be thankful.

The album is full of interesting twists and sonic surprises, plus the talents of guest vocalists Josh Rouse, Jim Adkins (Jimmy Eat World), Erica Driscoll (Blondfire), and more. The music is elevated another level still by the production talents of Wax Ltd, who have worked on albums as varied as indie’s Eels to Top 40’s Backstreet Boys. But rest assured this album is no bubble gum effort. Upon each additional listen, you’ll delight in the songs’ bright, intricate harmonies and its blips, bleeps, and artful instrumental touches.
