RIYL: Wolf Alice, Alvvays, Hatchie
Label: Specialist Subject Records
Originally the solo project of England singer/songwriter Elise Cook, Soot Sprite have evolved into a heavier dreamgaze trio. Now with added bass and drums, Sharp Tongue is the sound of this new transformation, a 5 track E.P. exploring a wider realm of fuzzy alt rock, shoegaze, twinkling dream pop and surf-tinged harmonies. Fans of female-fronted bands like Alvvays, Wolf Alice and Hatchie will find plenty to love in a track like Bleed, a shapeshifting tune that teeters back and forth between sunny major chords and eery, moody atmospheres.Â Check it out below.
Sharp Tongue is limited to 300 copies.Â You can grab a copy from Bandcamp after the ‘buy’ link, but shipping will cost a bit more for U.S. buyers. They aren’t flying off the shelves yet, luckily, so you’ll have some time to brood over it. Godspeed.
