Rounded out by programmer Will Bauer, percussionist Michael Pacis, and keyboardist Mike Forst, the deep partnership on Beatific yields an EP that sprawls with myriad sounds and influences intersecting its four songs.
“In our world, the distinction between genres is rather grey,” Marish told GroundSounds in a recent interview ahead of their debut Sunshine EP. Where lead single "She Loves Him" is a euphoric trip into sun-drenched psych-folk, Beatific quickly segue into "Smile Dangerous," a bassy, strutting left turn into synth pop. The EP's most personal moment, "Perpetual Contemplation of an Infinite Glory," is a meditative unpacking of intergenerational trauma.
As wide-reaching as it sounds on paper, Sunshine is ultimately an eclectic, but focused journey into how we find our own beatific moments in a complicated world.
