#115 The Epstein – Calling Out Your Name

Oxford indie-folksters The Epstein have a new album, Murmurations, on the way and the first single from it is ‘Calling Out Your Name’. Singer Olly Wills says of the new record: “We weren’t looking to catch the live performance, which is what we obsessed over in previous recordings. We wanted this to be the style of us in the studio with the time and thought that go into the process. We wanted this to be grand, to be sweeping, to be epic and to be cinematic in scope.” You can feel that ambition in ‘Calling Out Your Name’, a hazy, dreamy track that whets the appetite for Murmurations, which gets a launch party at London’s Vortex on Sunday.
