Following on from their much-lauded EP ‘The Years’, Memoryhouse AKA Evan Abeele and Denise Nouvion are set to release their long-awaited full length debut through Sub Pop.
The record finds the duo taking influence from Emmylou Harris, Dusty Springfield and Fleetwood Mac, in their own words “transitioning from a “bedroom recording project” into a fully realized band. Nouvion’s voice has never been more present than on the new album, which finds her stepping away from Memoryhouse’s past reverbed sound in favor of a more upfront, and intimate vocal affectation. They half-seriously refer to their new sound as “Taylor Swift with Built to Spill as her backing band.” Beautiful, beguiling stuff.
