The Cordial Sins are drawing fervent attention for their delectable meld of alternative, shoegaze and pop, having recently completed their first U.S. tour in support of Elvis Depressedly. The group’s electrifying performance has also been showcased on stages shared with the likes of The Breeders, Foals, The Flaming Lips, Twin Peaks, Wolf Alice and more.
In Memory, the band’s latest EP, was written in earnest by The Cordial Sins co-founders, Liz Fisher (vocals, guitar) and Corey Dickerson (lead guitar, vocals), and lovingly bore by long-time bandmates Kyle Edwards (guitar), John Allen (bass) and Mike Ortiz (drums), all during the most haphazardly fleeting form of time: tour. In moments on the road — of arresting inspiration, dissembling emotion, and scarce stillness — The Cordial Sins made a grittily fizzing meld of rasping indie rock, melty shoegaze, and raw emotion, almost combative in its strength.
In Memory is out now on Chicago-based label, Diversion Records.
