Debut, Happens, was first self released January 24, 2013, at a pay-what-you-want quota featuring an immense plate of electro-acoustic abstractions. One could call it a “bedroom record”, but sighs explores nature and other miscellaneous sounds more than what the average record of this aesthetic does. Less than six months later on June 21, sighs released their sophomore release Fabric, honing in on their sound even more with less filler tracks and having more complex structures of tracks yet still having the nooks and crannies that made Happens so special.
Draped in nostalgic textures, Sighs incorporates many elements of the mystique of field recordings, lo-fi bedroom recordings, and a great sense of melody. Eight minute standouts like “Mirrored Mosaics” on Sighs’ debut Happens touches on every one of those elements expanding into this dreamy interpretations of a halcyon neighborhood in July. Border-lining on this electro-acoustic improvisation, sighs sways in and out of layers and layers of organic cloudiness. “Bicycle Sounds” off sophomore release Fabric stacks these blurred memories of plucking acoustic guitars and ethereal vocals that Snook incorporates into the duo’s aesthetic.
