Los Angeles based The Yorks are preparing for the release of their latest EP, Purple Sunsets and and we’re delighted to premiere the EP as a whole right here on Backseat Mafia today.
Moving to more of a solo project with Jorge Rodrigo Azanza at the help, The Yorks take something of a lo-Fi indie approach to things, sitting somewhere between a scuffed up Real Estate and a bottled down Ty Segall. The EP opens with previous single ‘Only To Find’, this echoey, hazy sound of the slacker with chiming guitars bleeding into eachother and these glorious hushed vocals and peek your ears with their comforting sound.
Follow on Purple Sunsets follows a similar tack, these winding organ and guitar lines that weave in and out of eachother chiming the way, as the melodies splash against your ears, the double manned vocals persuasive and cooing, leaving space for spoken interjections as it unfurls.
Closer ‘Many Things’ is the sweetest of the three, the innocence contained within engaging, and the sweeping synth sounds that quietly ebb and flow at in the background just coaxing you along. In the foreground, its the heartfelt pleas of love that knock you for six.
It’s beautiful stuff. Check it out, here
