end of august / notus
trouble in mind
‘The End Of August’ begins the single with a gentle, lilting guitar strum & bubbling mellotron, before kicking into a subtle, driving chorus that perfectly captures the ennui of summer's close.
‘Notus’ resides on the flip side - a loping, lysergic instrumental that pitches a tent in between the works of Perrey-Kingsley & Stereolab, while flirting with a slightly progressive song structure, moving beyond the Syd Barrett-influenced baroque-pop of earlier works.
