'Hollow Dye (Defected Crystal)' is the second single to be taken from 'VPI Harmony,' the debut album for Atlanta-based five-piece Mood Rings. 'Hollow Dye' rattles from dreamy post-punk before making a measured turn into its hazy conclusion. This is a song with many levels, effortlessly revealing themselves with each listen.
Shifting seamlessly from taut post-punk to lush 60s balladry, and starry-eyed guitar pop to moody guitar squall, 'VPI Harmony' is the sound of a band meticulously studied in their influences, and unafraid to expand, combine and re-imagine the sounds of their musical loves into their own signature package, and can be heard in full on 24th June, 2013 via Mexican Summer.
Moving from the loose, lo-fi quality of their debut EP 'Sweater Weather Forever' in 2011, 'VPI Harmony' was recorded, mixed and mastered in-studio at Gary's Electric in Brooklyn. The upgrade has done wonders for enhancing the band's sound, and helping to fully realize and emulate their seemingly encyclopedic knowledge of pop production.
It was on this day (June 15th) in 1979 that Joy Division unveiled their iconic debut album 'Unknown Pleasures'.
