Memoryhouse -The Kids Were Wrong
Go to sleep. Nothing’s changing. I’ll be right here by your side.
Tear the seems. We‘re not aging, beneath these trembling starlit skies.
Conceptually driven as a collaborative art project between photographer Denise Nouvion and producer/ composer Evan Adeele, Memoryhouse has in the five years since its inception developed beyond cross-media home recordings. Debuting in 2009 with their The Years E.P. featuring the single “To the Lighthouse” and doing extended tours through Europe and the US, the duo grossed pop acclamation and signed onto indie label Sub Pop Records (Album Leaf, Beach House, DNTEL, Ruby Suns, Washed Out). Last September, the legendary record label even revamped and reissued the Memoryhouse debut EP (originally released under Arcade Sound), giving it a rich and produced rework.
Preparing for the February release of their official debut LP The Slideshow Effect, Adeele and Nouvion, along with Barzin Hassani Rad (awesome name) on bass, came out with their new Memoryhouse single “The Kids Were Wrong”.
With Sub Pop backing them, the production is crisp and concise, and although the nostalgic reverb of their original recordings falls and slips away, the aftermath presents a blossoming Nouvion, and a clean Adeele composition. Nonetheless, Memoryhouse continues to burn in our hearts with sunny sentiment and starry-eyed distinction.
Along with their single release, Memoryhouse also came out with their cover of “This Will Be Our Year” by band favorite The Zombies. Enjoy this extra morsel and love them all the more. We do and we’re happier for it.
