Stream: The Moth & the Flame "Sorry"

Talent usually goes unnoticed, and that's certainly the case for alt-rock trio The Moth & the Flame, whose electronic-tinged pop songs caught the attention of Ultraista drummer Joey Waronker [credits include Beck, R.E.M, & Atoms of Peace]  to produce their six song EP &. Structured around a rhyhtmic backbeat, the lead single off their latest EP "Sorry" confidently hovers with limber guitars alongside a prominent keyboard arrangement that gives the song a palpable sense of atmosphere. But the shuffling electronic textures never get in the way of maintaining a song-oriented approach, and its in their willingness to emphasize a keening melody where they demonstrate an ability to retain creative control while aspiring to take things to a grander scale. & comes out on October 29th via Hidden Records, and to support the release they're making a stop at Bootleg Bar on October 25th.
