AllMusic Review by

Bedroom electronic producer Seth Haley's neon electro-pop tracks made under the Com Truise moniker first surfaced to wide acclaim in early releases like his critically lauded 2011 debut, Galactic Melt. His sci-fi synth melodies and warped VHS tape production were decided throwbacks to forgotten corners of '80s pop culture, evoking grainy memories of early video games and funky soundtracks from diet soda commercials. In Decay gathers together 13 tracks recorded well before Haley's widely distributed early work as Com Truise and presents a slightly rougher-around-the-edges vision of the same sound. Highlights include the icy computeristic funk of "Klymaxx" and the slowly propulsive staggered rhythms of "Data Kiss."
