Nanami Ozone - This Phoenix, Arizona post-rock quartet keep listeners on their toes as they mix dreamy atmospheric sounds with subtle fuzzy noise. Rich, resonant bass and delicate, driving percussion prevent songs from droning off into oblivion; courtesy of bassist Jordan Owen and drummer Chris Gerber. Dual guitarist/vocalists Sophie Opich and Colson Miller trade off as they deliver droney distorted guitars and vocals calm, cool, and collected enough to come off as almost apathetic if it weren’t for the stirring feeling of earnestness that lay just below the surface. Some moments feel fraught, almost like a dull anxiety-- found on “Affection” and “Something to You”, which both convey a profound sense of yearning for more. Emotional odes to the past “Erase Time” and “Think of Me None” showcase a distinct tenderness. -Delaney Motter
