With support from the likes of Atwood Magazine and Pancakes and Whiskey, Brooklyn-based duo Almost Sex could well be the new masters of indie-folk soon. This outfit has been steadily gaining momentum thanks to their highly unique approach to the genre.
These are songs that harmoniously fuse electronic and organic tones together, resulting in pieces of music that are impossible not to feel some kind of affinity for.
Debut EP ‘We’re Okay’ includes a collection of songs that feature eclectic and heady blends of indie-folk and hazy lo-fi pop, along with subtle hints of alt-rock and Americana.
“The process of writing and recording this EP involved us stripping things back a bit to consolidate the core elements that made up our sound. Our drummer had been away for work for most of the year, so we began performing shows with an analog drum machine from 1979. We decided to take it into the studio with us and it ended up becoming the principal instrument featured on most of these tracks. Much of the lyrical content of the project centers around themes of getting older in an increasingly frightening and hyper-commodified world.”
New EP ‘We’re Okay’ is out now.
