Collect Call is delighted to announce the release of stunning EP The Golden Hour. The Golden Hour is a romantic, nostalgic journey through sound about embodying the dying embers of the day and not giving up the ghost when all might seem lost. Joseph Thorpe’s dream-pop project is characterised by whimsical, lo-fi electronic beats and sincere vocals.
Recorded in a mixture of cupboards and studios, Thorpe has created a space where he could express himself and has done so with a nuanced vulnerability. Taking inspiration from the likes of Sufjan Stevens and Air, Collect Call’s latest EP is as experimental as it is emotive.
Hailing from Brighton, Collect Call began after Joe, briefly, flirted with psyche rock bands, before slowly developing his own project, creating a space where he could express himself and rightly call his own.
The decision to do so has paid dividends with Collect Call going on to produce a nuanced, enchanting style of electronic dream-pop; as experimental as it is emotive.
From the angst-ridden beauty of debut single Simple, grooving and bass-heavy, to the dream-like sparseness of ‘No Amount Of Medicine’, and the hypnotic, propulsive beats of current single Chase the Light, The Golden Hour EP is an affecting and honest journey through the mind of a complicated individual.
Embodying the dying embers of the day and not giving up the ghost when all might seem lost, The Golden Hour exhibits Collect Call’s innate ability to create vulnerable, sincere and, ultimately, cathartic soundscapes. The final product is testament to holding onto your ideals even in the darkest of times. Overflowing with intricate details, lucid pianos, synths and samples, The Golden Hour is the cure to a troubled mind.
The Golden Hour EP is out now.
