New track: Inland Murmur – Waterline

There’s something delightfully late-80s/early-90s about this new track from Cardiff indie three-piece, Inland Murmur. Consisting of Hannah on bass and vocals, Alan on guitar, and Toby on drums, guitars and vocals, they have a sound that falls somewhere between Out of Time-era REM, Broadcast, the Killers, and latter-day New Order. There’s a gentle wistfulness running through the track (in no small part due to Hannah’s lead vocal) and a well-balanced, dynamic arrangement that juggles the free-flowing momentum of the guitars with a taut drum track. Basically what I’m trying to say is that it’s a well-written song, the kind that slowly creeps up on your subconscious as opposed to reaching out and bludgeoning you. I was drawn into listening based on their name – with at least part of it reminding me of early REM – and the cool artwork (always a good sign) so it was a pleasure to find such a gem. Check out their previous single, Icarus, on Spotify too. As with Waterline, it’s a lovely thing, and it showcases a very different side to the band. I’m sure I’ll not be the only one keeping an eye out for their first EP later this year.
