It's a tall order to name yourself Auditorium. The baroque pop project sure lives up to the lofty name, though, as the full choral harmonies and vibrant acoustic guitar flourishes masterminded by multi-instrumentalist Spencer Berger could capture the attention of thousands who seek a powerful dose of musical uplift. Berger's latest single, "Fire Fire Ocean Liner", displays his ease at creating subtle but tangile drama with a flightly romanticism that's startling. The promo cut's artistic direction only enhances his willingness to subvert conventions regardless of how it may rebut their otherwise palpable optimism.
Auditorium's new album, The First Music, will be released on January 27, 2017. Juan Rodríguez
