Our Husband – ‘Villages’ (mp3)

Listen to

Our Husband is a new side limb for Nathaniel Morse of Adelaide band Fire! Santa Rosa, Fire! and Freya Adele formerly of now defunct act Bing Goes to Monaco.

Woodland hymnals for melody lines, tangles of glistening guitar, Villages carves another elegant figure into the realm of narcoticised folk-pop.

Freya’s spectral vocals add to the thoughtful construction of this track, leaving you feeling as if you’ve had your head immersed in a jar of liquid hydrogen for a week.

Villages works as a solid opening track, but seems incomplete in it’s wider narrative scheme.  Our Husband’s debut will be released later on in the year, so for now, this has to suffice on repeat. If you’re into Beach House, you’ll like this.

Definitely giving Big Scary a run for their money on my list of top local acts this year so far.

    Fire! Santa Rosa, Fire! are from Adelaide, along with Bing Goes To Monaco (who aren’t together anymore).

    Nathaniel is originally from Melbourne but now resides here.

    Wikipedia taught me all I know.

    Great song.
