EDITORS’ NOTES

They may be known for black attire and dark fascinations, but the seventh album from this Toronto nu-goth outfit radiates light. Under Your Spell instantly transfixes with the DayGlo dream pop of “One,” whose widescreen splendor evokes the synth fantasias of M83. And while “All of Nothing” keeps the metallic guitar roar of the band’s early work, the skittering, strobe-lit rhythms and the romantic ruminations of femme-fatale frontwoman Chibi are closer in spirit to post-EDM R&B.
