Creatures of an Hour
deceptively simple, cinematic songs that linger like half-remembered dreams, from london based reverb lovers.
creating a diaphanous, gauzy sound with sparse, morricone-like guitars, wobbly synths, crisp beats & the woozy, ephemeral intimacy of singer tessa murray, songwriter, producer/engineer & self-confessed cinephile greg hughes arrives with a fully formed aesthetic, distilling his obsessions with french new wave & italian horror in a beautiful & convincing way that recalls broadcast & stereolab. expect to get lost in a soft web of reverb as your imagination relents to the waves of wistful psychedelic drift & floats on out into their eerie emotional landscapes. a real grower of an album that comes highly recommended! “mixing 60s production with dream-pop shimmer, are these wafty british etherealists heralding a new golden age of indie?” – guardian.
