Van Goose achieve that joy here, on Habitual Eater. There is compulsion, there is drive, there’s something kinda spiritual happening. Darkness is discussed, but lightness is offered. Camaraderie too. The comfort of this album is not small.
‘Wildstar’ now shifts trajectory of expectation. This is after-after party action. Club-adjacent, bottom-of-the-glass beauty.
Van Goose knows how to find the dance in anything, and so the energy here is set to avoid constructed, or trite responses to the norm.
Wishing we’d caught the ‘Last Bus’ is a universal, metaphysical truth. Van Goose knows that sometimes life cannot be escaped.
