ARTIST: Indoor Voices
RELEASE DATE: 15/01/16
RECORD COMPANY: Häxrummet Records
Lush and layered, Auratic, the new EP from Canada’s Indoor Voices has a hymn-like feel in places. The rich electronic instrumentation and vocal upon vocal creates a dizzying and dreamy vortex. Formed in the latter half of the first decade of the 21st century, Indoor Voices began as the bedroom pop brainchild of Toronto based musician Jonathan Relph. As the sound developed into contrasting atmospheric backdrops and textures played off ethereal harmonies, so did the band, which currently stands at five members strong. This five track EP also features guest vocals from: Sandra Vu (SISU/Dum Dum Girls), Jimena Torres (The Great Wilderness), Kate Rogers (Kate Rogers Band), Alisha Erao (Lush Agave/Alligator Indian) & Maja Thunberg (Star Horse).
The whirl begins with See Wish and its lashings and lashings of lavish electronica. Layers of vocals ease in to the pleasing wow and flutter of Atomic. Indifferentiator is part Gregorian chant, part dance-floor filler, full of sound. Gigantic guitars lead the way on What Can I, whammying in a way that Kevin Shields would surely approve of. The EP comes to a close with Say, which sighs and twinkles, sadly and sweetly.
