The Last Light
Lie To Me
With their dials firmly set to the epic and transcendent, Nottingham's When The Sun Hits bring us their latest, a six track EP of big wide open guitarscapes, big vocals and even bigger choruses. The Last Light comes on like early Verve with extra washed out guitars and a glowering rhythm section. Lie To Me feels breezier until another big chorus lands, with plaintive and wrenched vocals wrestling their way across a melodic wall of sound. Twilight takes us into different territory altogether as stunning synth-like vapour guitars interlock into relaxed ethereality that bridge from the shoegaze to Warp's Seefeel and Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works.
Stereopium, with dreamy lyrics and soft strings is a perfect lullaby. Cooper's Secret closes the EP with more guitar washed out ambient instrumental goodness, a perfect end to a perfectly realised EP, and one that leaves them well placed to add to Nottingham's fine music heritage.
