Morly has announced her new EP, Something More Holy, which is set for a worldwide release on April 8th via Cascine, and is the follow up to her acclaimed one-off single “The Choir,” and debut project In Defense of My Muse. Something More Holy, the first collaborative release of Morly’s, leads with the moving track “If Only Chords” that premieres today on KCRW. PRESS HERE TO LISTEN. “If Only Chords” is a testament to the Minnesota born singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer’s exceptional sense for melody. Known for her minimalist and mostly instrumental approach to creating music, “If Only Chords” demonstrates Morly evolving her low-fi sound and songwriting ability, as the new single soars with textured pop elements.
Morly expressed, “This EP was quite literally a process of finding my voice-discovering how I sing technically, emotionally, and lyrically. But also discovering myself in the context of collaborating with someone else.” Morly continues, “Being so used to working alone, collaborating with my good friend Stint forced me to learn how to communicate what sort of sonic space I wanted to create and also know when to trust someone else’s artistry. Working with him actually helped me to understand myself more as an artist-how I create, what I like, what I have to say.”
Something More Holy will be available in physical and digital formats, plus Cascine will be releasing the project on a special 12″ vinyl collection. Preorder links listed below.
In support of the new EP, Morly is set to debut at this year’s SXSW, including performing on March 16th at St. David’s Historic Sanctuary official SXSW showcase and PEN‘s SXSW official showcase on March 18th. More SX appearances to be announced soon!
