Hive Mind, the fourth full-length album from the Internet, finds the Los Angeles five-piece reaching new levels of sophistication.
After doing their own thing with solo and side projects, the recombined talents of Syd, Steve Lacy, Matt Martians, Patrick Paige II and Christopher Smith are operating at their apex to craft an irresistible 60-minute set of quiet storm pop, laced with smokey echoes of Motown, neo-soul and jazzy R&B.
Hive Mind is a personal best from a band that has grown as individuals and come back together as a potent single unit.
