Though conceived as a duo, Mates of State have never failed to generate a trademark wall of sound built on dozens of varied voicing's of keys, drums, and alternately lushly-layered and playfully-dueling vocals. On re-arrange US they move beyond these boundaries (their traditional organ sound is a distant memory, replaced with organic piano and synthesizer sounds) with additional instrumentation, not to mention a quantum leap in song craft apparent on instantly indelible gems like now, jigsaw and get better. Throughout re-arrange us, Kori's piano and the emergence of both Mates' lead vocals from their trademark harmonizing signal the next stage of Mates of State's evolution.
