Check Out: Murals - On A Passing Cloud

Publish date:
Updated on

Murals is a new band from Louisville, Kentucky who make gorgeous, tender, and sometimes very subtle-creepy psych-folk that will needle its way first into your heart and then into your brain. On “Eyes of Love,” the single from their new record On A Passing Cloud, they’ll reel you in with a tender guitar and piano line, vocal harmonies, and Simon & Garfunkel-esque erudite rhythms, and then they’ll drop a piano chord that just sounds wrong – not incorrect, just subtly out of place, a little too dark for the chill pop-folk atmosphere they’ve spent a little while cultivating. But then you get that strange, mesmerizing middle section, a sort of wild west-y interlude that turns into spiraling, convoluted drones before you can ask what’s going on – and then, as if it never happened, as if the cloud never blew over the sun, back to that sweet vocal harmony. Basically, we’re really impressed.  On A Passing Cloud is definitely worth a stream or two – check it out.
