Loud And Clear: Memoryhook’s I Whisper It

Nagoya duo Memoryhook deal in small moments that feel big. The new group — founded this year, going off of social media — crafts heart-on-sleeve indie-pop that refuses to be fragile. They have too much energy spread out across debut release I Whisper It to warrant that adjective. Just listen to the bounce of “My Heart,” which conceals ennui under a chipper tempo and lovely backing “ahhhhhs.” The slower “To You” still waltzes ahead, building up to a shivery wordless stretch that ends the album on a high note, while only opener “Why” moves at half speed. That one is followed up by a slinky cover of Men I Trust’s “Lauren,” a nod to their influences. One to keep close tabs on. Get it here, or listen below.
