Atlanta quartet Mood Rings make engaging, pillow-soft indie that’s perfect for lazy days and moping

by michael cragg

Atlanta-based five-piece Mood Rings make the sort of shoegaze-y, dreampop-indebted indie that walks the very thin line between alluringly coy and downright bloodless. Thankfully they tend to fall on the side of the former, especially on April’s intriguingly-titled Pathos y Lagrimas (or pity and tears), the first single to emerge from their forthcoming debut, VPI Harmony, which marries airy drum splashes and gusts of guitar with singer Will Fussell’s breathy vocals. The latest track to be released ahead of the album is The Line – premiered here – which, if possible, tries even harder to create a doughy cloud of softness around the listener, with each extra element – be it the cascading guitars, ever-expanding synths or the delicate riff that bubbles up to the surface around the two-minute mark – meticulously placed to subtly move the song forward.

VPI Harmony is released on 24 June via Mexican Summer.
