Leicester-based indie rock quartet Sorrell deal with existential dread on contemplative number “For Once,” led by dreamy guitars, subtle drums and bass with floating vocal harmonies that create a melancholic yet ethereal soundscape.
The bittersweet track explores our everyday anxieties even as it evokes hope within us to overcome and escape it all. Luscious and heartfelt with sonic arrangements that rise and fall with the tension that slowly builds throughout the track, we’re left with an intimate and lasting connection with the four-piece even as the final notes fade away.
Speaking of the track, vocalist Dylan Lee says,"’For Once’ is a song that combines a lot of our different sonic influences, going from a mellow dream-pop song into a heavier, experimental rock song. I was influenced by slow-core bands such as Duster and Low during the writing of it, trying to give it a similar hollow, bittersweet feeling to the song.
Consisting of Lee,Sebastian Zamfirescu, Noel Walker-O’DowdandRobin Smith, Sorrell which formed at Leicester University has carved out a space for themselves with their hypnotic yet energetic brand of indie rock layered with psychedelic pop and abrasive post-punk sounds that leaves us wanting more of them.
