Rose Elinor Dougall - The Night

Not the first fruits of her second album yet, that's still in development hell, but The Distractions EP, three gratis full fidelity demos recorded with her titular live band soon after Without Why's 2010 emergence. She says that second full-length will be of a difficult musical hue to these but that's far from saying it's a drawer clearing exercise alone. This track has the insistent glimmer and cathedral reverberations of Mazzy Star and Treasure-era Cocteaus before bursting into shoegaze pop white light, anchored by Dougall's big vocal of yearning and hoping, before the sort of psychedelic transient noise bursts her brother Tom, on guitar here, is fashioning with Toy.
