Indoor Voices – ‘Auratic’ [EP Premiere]

indoor-voices-auratic

Häxrummet Records kicks off 2016 with the eagerly awaited Indoor Voices EP ‘Auratic’, launching today (grab it here)! The Toronto shoegaze / dream pop outfit have grown from the bedroom pop experiments of Jonathan Relph into a fully-fledged four piece. To date we’ve enjoyed the debut ‘Nevers’ (2011) and Indoor Voices self-titled EP from 2012, both are unique and brilliant. So there’s high hopes for ‘Auratic’ which features guest artists Sandra Vu (Dum Dum Girls / SISU), Jimena Torres (The Great Wilderness), Alisha Erao (Alligator Indian), and Maja Thunberg (of Star Horse).

As you will hear from the EP, a lot of time and thought has gone into these five songs. Each has a very different feel and mood; from the seasick shoegaze mantra ‘See Wish’, the stripped back beauty of ‘Atomic’, the dense dream pop of ‘Indifferentiator’, the title track’s blend of ethereal synth pop and shogaze, to the woozy closer ‘Say’. This is a great release with zero filler, I just hope it isn’t so long until we get another one! For more coverage, check out Jonathan’s interview with Greg at DKFM.
