Philadelphia’s own OLDERMOST have come a long way in the two and a half years since we last heard from them. They’re currently working on their debut full-length I Live Here Now, with this single showcasing two new tracks from the LP.
Not only has it been awhile since we heard from Oldermost, but their sound brings a refreshing change-up to our ears compared to the norm around here. For that reason we’re glad to be sharing their latest offering, which see’s the band honing up their warming brand of chamber pop on a near 10-minute single. It’s like the forerunner to their upcoming album which we should see before the end of the year. Their album (and also this 7″) were recorded at their home studio and Miner St. Recordings in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. A-side track “Close to the Fire” has us lost in its layered goodness, boasting both jangly string arrangements and soaring vocals that glide through subtle textures. It’s all summed up by a rollicking guitar solo, shaking the foundation of this wholesome track from the bottom up with a grandiose finale. Hear it right below, then sit tight for more from Oldermost in the coming weeks.
