'Influences' is a slide show of intimate joyful moments playing out against a backdrop of a world on fire. It's a dance record for the mind while the clubs are all closed, a rush-hour commute soundtrack for people stuck working from home. It's a celebration of survival and an elegy for lost friends. It's a reminder that excitement and anxiety often elicit the same heart-pounding sensation. Stylistically, the music bears similarities to lush Folktronica and frenetic 90s IDM, sure to evoke comparisons to Four Tet, The Books, or Mouse On Mars, while maintaining the grandiose post-rock sensibilities Broken Social Scene is known for.
