Waterstrider – “Midnight Moon” – 12.7.11
“I am whole beneath the midnight moon.
The sun comes far too soon.
Leave it to me to love you.”
For a band that has received little to no attention as of yet, the pop sensibilities present in Waterstrider‘s “Midnight Moon,” ought to speak for themselves.
This Berkeley-based, commune-consisting group weaves adventurous anecdotes amongst the reeds of the wetlands and the hum of the mountain passes. The lullaby-like vocals along with melodious mallet and maraca-work set a perfect pace in this track.
Luckily for us, this aspect permeates the entire Constellation EP, which grasps for greatness and lands amongst the glittered night-skies.
