Strictly Purple‘s Forgotten Songs EP is a mixed bag of folksy-stripped down shoegaze with two contrasting vocalists and great ambient synths. At their best when sharing a tune, Adam and Amina bring together strength and vulnerability, creating both smoothly, haunting surrealism and rougher emotionally raw takes. Forgotten Songs these will not be.
Find your spirit guide and take a trip with us for Clara Engel’s most recent relsease Visitors Are Allowed One Kiss. It’s doom folk, “avant-blues hymns” centered on dusty, raw vocals and acoustic guitar. Hauntingly beautiful and meditiative, Engel’s international collaboration builds a dark fairytale of a record. Jess digs into themes of seduction and death’s release, and Dylan explores how depression is perfectly captured in “Once A White Owl.” Heavy but worth it, friends. Get in the loop!
