Le Ren - Morning & MelancholiaRegular price $32.50
Le Ren's close-to-the-bone, heartbreak folk songs seem, at first, to tap into a shared musical memory. A melody swirls forward and you’re just sure it's known to the back of your mind; was it in from a movie you saw, some classic mid-60s set piece? Maybe it's something you heard as a kid, in the backseat of your mom’s Cutlass, or the shotgun seat of your own. But before you can zero in through the fog, your heart is torn apart by her voice — rich, direct, and mellifluous — steering you through these slowburn tunes about real-life loss.
Two years ago, Spear’s ex-boyfriend was killed in a car accident. Since then, she has been struggling with the immeasurable weight of being the sole keeper of their shared memories and in response, translated a sliver of that experience into music. Her EP, 'Morning & Melancholia', is a mediation on mourning, memory and how to live with the ellipses you’re forever left with in the wake of loss.
