A lush synth pop turn from the London house head.

"The first time I heard "Room With No View," I couldn't help but think of Drake's "Hold On We're Going Home"—a seemingly effortless turn to '80s synth pop that glows and shimmers in all the right places. A good chunk of that feeling comes from vocalist Boxed In, whose silvery but detached vocals come off like a cross between Ecco2K and Prefab Sprout, but it wouldn't hit as hard without Seb Wildblood's pulsating beat, which puts a late-'10s UK house spin on sputtering synth pop. "
