Over tumbling drums and bass that wanders with curiosity and a free spirit, Laura Murdoch relays the scenario of a perfect scene (of two tales) through a hazy lens of psych-pop melancholy. Like Mazzy Star filtered through a tougher 60s aesthetic, the guitar of Rob Young hangs in the air, all shimmering, ringing chords and atmospheric melodies, particularly the chiming, six-string sparkle of the chorus.
Murdoch and Young, the core of The Wednesday Night, say of the new single…
“The Perfect Scene paints two dark film noir tales. The stories hang in limbo with no resolve, encircled in reverse looped guitars so you’re not sure if it’s the beginning, the end or even if the tales intertwine. Either way, you get the eerie feeling we’re all in it together.”
