Creatures of An Hour
Sub Pop Records
Sub Pop Records’ Still Corners release their debut full-length project, Creatures of An Hour. This record maintains an airy-atmospheric sound that listeners have probably come to familiarize themselves with – but on this record, the songs take a change in tone.
Paying close attention to two of my personal favourites, “Circular” uses dark synths, fuzzy-psychedelic undertones and a foggy graveyard setting, while “Endless Summer” is dreamlike with a forever-floating sound. A sound which lead singer Tessa Murray gracefully (and at times indistinguishably) contrasts/accompanies with her feathery soprano vocals. You’ll find the songs on this album tend to be a bit darker, draped with mystery and hauntingly eerie inflections.
Sounds like an old classic Horror movie right?
Well that’s exactly the vibe you get throughout Creatures of An Hour, and despite not being big on Horror movies myself, the album’s a good listen. It’s simple and creative; the songs give off imaginative visuals that keep listeners attuned from beginning to end.
