'TOMORROW / THE FOUNTAIN'
(Limited repress on transparent vinyl, 300 copies only)
'Tomorrow' / 'The Fountain' sees the band at the top of their game, releasing some of their most compelling and sophisticated songs yet, building on the aching themes and 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 and relaxed bass progress. Samuel T. Herring's ever-impressive vocal has never sounded more akin to Sam Cooke as he smoothly laments "I'm saying sorry every time we talk" before careening into a flight of sustained, arguably uncontrollable emotion. Some choice, additional vocals from Jenn Wasner (of Wye Oak), Lexie Mountain and Elena Johnston only make the song seem more impassioned; its ardent nature perfectly rendered into melody.
