Elsewhere, Felix’s ability with vocal chops lends Going Up adistinctly Discovery-era Daft Punk vibe. This album, Felix says, is like a compendium of short stories. “There are emotional songs, but it’s more carefree. ”Expensive Sounds For Nice People, you’ll find, she dsitssecrets and wisdom over multiple plays
