To say Allan Cuva is multi-talented would be a bit of an understatement. He’s part of The Pressure Kids, a raucous rock band filled with heart, and Cuva, a pop-tinged duo he started with his brother Jacob, and a sometimes-drummer for bands on the road. In the midst of these gigs and projects, Cuva quietly began making an EP of his own: Junior Coder’s Experiment, under the name “allie.” Junior Coder’s Experiment does in fact seem to hit those internal notes, like a thoughtful existential commentary that induces comfort rather than anxiety. All five tracks are somewhat stripped down, with a way of making plain-stated truths feel intricate and new. Though it came without warning, allie’s Junior Coder’s Experiment has proven to be the best kind of surprise. With intuition and honest dialogue, Cuva created a body of songs that sheds light on how good it can be to exist in the world in a time we need it most. allie’s beautiful 5-track EP is a thoughtful existential commentary that induces comfort rather than anxiety.
