Silver Linings

Elise Cook is your narrator within the headspace of Silver Linings, the debut LP by Austin-based lo-fi outfit Bleach Burn. Though the tone is conversational, it’s delivered in a slightly hushed manner, adding to the mystique of its misty dream-pop haze. And there are dreams. There are unanswered questions. A desire is crackling beneath the surface, but fear grips so tightly. Our narrator will not acquiesce to the possibility of that pain…

“Where one might say absence makes the heart grow fonder / I ask, what about me?” Cook murmurs into the darkness on the AMM-featured track “Abscence.” But will the question be answered? “Don’t tell me I’m out of mind / Don’t tell me / Please / Am I out of your mind?”
