Beautiful music for a beautiful day.
Do you remember Wanderhouse? They set the internet on fire last Autumn with ‘Use Me Up’ and their astonishing cover of Ellie Goulding’s ‘Lights’, so you can imagine my delight to wake up to an email containing new track ‘Sugar’. Playing on similar elements to their initial tracks, Doctor Rosen Rosen’s production is cultured and sparse, methodical in it’s use of space whilst perfectly accentuating the lacquered vocal of Marie Moreshead. A song which which will again garner deserved praise from fans of The xx and James Blake, I genuinely believe that this is an act doing something honest and original. Objectively stunning, it is timeless in it’s delivery, layering gorgeous melody with intelligent and captivating production. Pressure was on following the acclaim of ‘Use Me Up’, having reached the Top 10 on Hype Machine, and ‘Sugar’ deserves to do just as well.
I’m waiting on details of official releases etc, but download now whilst you can.
