premiere: Morly – And Sooner Than We Know It…

The latest signing to our favorite little label is Morly, aka Minnesotan producer/songwriter/conjurer-of-magic Katy Morley. Her beautiful new EP In Defense of My Muse is made up of what the label calls four “lo-fi explorations into the transient space between joy and melancholy,” and is inspired, at least in part, by the “deep wintry sadness” of Morley’s home state. That sadness starts to fade, though, on the EP’s glorious emotional centerpiece “And Sooner Than We Know It…“, as the lonely, plaintive piano that opens the track slowly and steadily squads up with a gently rousing beat, sunbeam synths, and gorgeous, uplifting, wordless choral swells, and it feels like the ice is melting away, the clouds are parting, and everything’s going to be alright. Put this one on your “let’s stay up and watch the sunrise” playlist next to Julianna Barwick, Koreless, Sigur Ros, et. al. In Defense of My Muse is out August 14 on Cascine.
