Choir Boy - Sunday Light (Cream Color 7")
Since Choir Boy’s debut LP, Passive With Desire, the dream-pop outfit has gained a cult following online and in underground circles. Adam’s stunning vocal range, layered compositions, and heartbreaking melodies are backed by musical partner Chaz Costello on bass (Human Leather) and along with a rotating cast of players, create the perfect blend of nostalgia-laced romantic pop. “Sunday Light”, the first single since Passive With Desire's release, is a coming of age story, and touches on the frightening aspects of religion, ritual, and secrecy through the eyes of someone discovering the truth behind the door for the first time. Strong vocals soar throughout the composition, reaching dizzying heights and diving into low and commanding tones, backed with strings and reverbed keys – it makes for majestic, but haunted nostalgia. "Madeline” is the quintessential B-side heartbreaker – “…a pessimistic commentary to an accumulative experience with love and romance. Ranging from memories of young love to hopelessness in adult relationships”, this ballad impresses with beautiful and delicate arrangements, the slow motion soundtrack for a hopeless young romance.
