R.I.P Reflektor era!! Has it been a year?? Feels like just yesterday we were tearing our hair out over cryptic clues on pavements and Instagram…
:’) It’s been the most fun fan experience I’ve ever had. Roll on 2016 (I hope)…remember to drink water in the meantime.
Alea Rae - ‘Flies’ & ‘Lancaster’
Vancouver indie folk trio Alea Rae released their split single last month, which you can stream above.
This humble but powerful release marks their departure from singer-songwriter folk with the addition of synth bass and predominantly electric guitar, and perfectly captures their live performance in a basement studio recreation.
Their sound evades genres: though it dips into the world of indie-rock, it has become atmospheric and hints at chamber pop with Farrugia’s guitar work and Ackermann’s dynamic percussion, yet still retains folk undertones with Rae’s guitar work and distinctive vocals.
I think it’s absolutely gorgeous. Beautifully haunting, just my cup of tea. I’m very much looking forward to a full length release! I implore you to check this band out :)
