Ember- 261

A few fine folks down in Birmingham, AL have come together to bring us the bewitching debut EP from Ember titled "261". Doomy with elegant touches, these three tracks blend crunchy tone, dreamy female vocals, and a slightly mysterious atmosphere in a way that invites you to come deeper into the sound. The seductively smooth voice draws you in and leaves you spellbound as the rhythm buffets against you. Crystal is a siren, with her beautiful call luring you into the dark, dangerous music. It could almost be hypnotic, but the occasional dissonant twangs of the guitar keep you just lucid enough to make sure you don't lose yourself completely. So what does "261" mean anyway? I don't know- probably the amount of times i'll be listening to this. -Brandon
