When Five Years with the Sun was first introduced, Malcom Lacey called it his “goodbye letter to South Florida.” The difficult part about having statements like this though, is how closely we may choose to hold the respective artist to that statement. To do so in this case allows Five Years to play out much like a book of memories. The details range in how they are presented, but the affair is personal nonetheless. Much like Plantation, Lacey pulls the listener close to his own thoughts and images. Yet there is also an ethereal nature to this EP that makes it much more dreamlike. It’s a blurry line between memory and dream, but Lacey chooses to indulge in this space and create a complete piece.
