art moore – art moore

Art Moore – Art Moore 

On their self-titled debut, Art Moore float between dazed instrumentation from Sam Durkes and Trevor Brooks and Taylor Vick’s low-flying, contused vocals. Its ambition is to soar beyond the clouds and kiss the sun. The trouble is that their dreaminess is often truncated by a soporific, tranquilizing tempo. Art Moore stays clawed to the earth, so that it incarnates the frazzling effects of staying in the sun too long, rather than a more inspiring glaze. True, the writing is centred on heartbreak and feeling most alive in a detached state, but the misty performances eventually curl into an almost complete fade, evaporating any gratifying substance to take away.
