tomorrow / the fountain

upset the rhythm

white 7"

Released: 3rd Sep 2012


some of their most compelling & sophisticated songs yet, building on the aching themes & poignant focus of their last album ‘On The Water’.

‘Tomorrow’ is a soulful swoon, its light tread is mesmerising amongst the slow burning synth cycles & relaxed bass. Some choice, additional vocals from Jenn Wasner (of Wye Oak), Lexie Mountain & Elena Johnston make the song seem even more impassioned. ‘The Fountain’ meanwhile is a luscious narrative sunk into a slow dance. the keyboard work here is stunning, the blooming chords and fluted air soaring across a landscape of crushed cymbals and quivering ambience.
