Wonderful new review of You Won’t Remember This in the new ANTIGRAVITY Magazine! Jesse Lu Baum writes, “You Won’t Remember This is a living example of form married to function. Created by the local duo Orca, Attack! (Elizabeth Joan Kelly and David Rodriguez), the two-song EP is part of DIY label superpolar Taïps’ cassette single and EP series, and is as quirky as the label and its chosen medium…It’s a delightfully odd listen!” Catch the full review on the ANTIGRAVITY website or in print (!) if you live in New Orleans.

On The Fringes of Sound and Space Is The Place
There’s a lovely review of You Won’t Remember This from On The Fringes of Sound:
The title track is an instant attention grabber as it begins with indie-folk vibes that quickly take an electronic with soaring pads and tight percussion that blend in perfectly. The next track “World Map” takes us in an even stranger direction as warm electric bass lines mix it up with more airy percussion and springy synth lines.

Vital Weekly and The quietus reviews
Great day for You Won’t Remember This reviews. First up, Vital Weekly writes, “‘You Won’t Remember This’ is a breezy Avant-folk tune with a slightly hoarse voice, starting mellow with acoustic guitars but fully opening up when the drum machines and electronics kick in… ‘World Map’, on the other side, is a bit more abstract in terms of ‘pop’ or ‘folk’, with a significant role for the drum machine, and all the other sounds around appear in a dub form, coming and going. But the melodic aspect of this song isn’t forgotten and gives this song a great flavour as well.”
Then the Cassingle series gets a shoutout in this month’s Spool’s Out column in The Quietus (!!!!). “From a tentative acoustic opening, the duo of Elizabeth Joan Kelly and David Rodriguez ascend to a glorious Tropicália meets shoegaze epic. It’s ridiculous in its ambition, cramming an album’s worth of ideas into two minutes and thirty seconds.”

Cassingles review on further dot
The first review of Orca, Attack’s! new (cas)single, You Won’t Remember This, is out and it’s lovely.
“‘You Won’t Remember This’ sounds like it should belong on a Dirty Projectors or Fleet Foxes album, all languid acoustic guitars, yearning vocals from Rodriguez and haunting, elegiac harmonies from Kelly. Around the halfway mark the track suddenly pivots into a cloud of exultant wordless vocals, a jubilant beat and sounds that seem to soar gracefully skyward. On the flip, the instrumental ‘World Map’ is all low-slung bass, wonky melodies and unfathomable rhythms. Eclecticism rules.”
Many thanks to Mat! You Won’t Remember This is available now for presale, out on April 1. Read the full review over on furtherdot.com.
