Lore City – Under Way (Single – Lore City Music)

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Cinematic, Ethereal.

Format: Digital, Vinyl.

Background/Info: Hailing from Portland (USA) Lore City is driven by the duo Laura Mariposa Williams – Eric Angelo Bessel. They’re now active for numerous years and have -mainly self-released their work. We here get their newest single featuring two songs.

Content: “Animate” is a dreamy track supported with Ethereal, and bewitching, female vocals. The song is driven by a slow cadence and achieved with refined electro sound treatments. “Very Body” is an instrumental cut which sounds darker and definitely into Cinematic music.

+ + + : I like the inhibited sphere hanging over the work which is created by delicate sound treatments and the magic of Laura’s vocals. “animate” definitely sounds like a great piece of music.

– – – : “Very Body” doesn’t sound bad at all but can’t compete with the magic of the main song.

Conclusion: It’s hard to define this formation but the sound is intriguing and subtle.

Best songs: Animate”.

Rate: 7.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
