The debut EP from Philadelphia dreampop trio The Morelings. Their press release has everything you need to know. But I will add that; Too Far has the distorted guitar with delay that sounds like something out on the mid-period Cocteau Twins album. Kedra Kearis’s vocals sound sparse, claustrophobic and murky all at the same time, and she is quite dreamy as girls go.
No Sign promises fifteen minutes of ethereal vocals, spacious gazey guitar, and intoxicating rhythms. The opening track, “Less,” both floats and drives with dream pop hooks, while the bass saturated 2nd track, “Too Far,” oscillating from washy chaos to arresting order, hypnotically defies formula. The title track, “No Sign,” explores the best of both of these worlds, as it juxtaposes The Morelings’ melodic sensibility with trip-hop bass lines, minimalist jazz-like drumming, soaring melodies, and chorus-drenched baroque guitar lines, reaching an almost cinematic sound.
