HoneyComeBear’s calling card has been the ability to take familiar EDM stompings and find a way to turn them into something closer to a J-pop ballad without sacrificing the banger qualities. “Calling” offers the latest example of the duo’s balancing act, featuring skittering drum beats and bright keyboard melodies wrapped around tender verses just really leaning in on the emotion. But thankfully, instead of a swell of strings come the hook, HoneyComeBear let a sharp metallic swarm of synths buzz off as the center. Always here for tension between the sweet and the stinging.
