Mars To Stay - staywell / saturday (2011, The Low and The Highs)

I'm not sure if this two track release comes before or after their EP but it is as impressive and even more because the vocals are recorded here more clearly. The UK duo slowly takes importance as a new slowcore band to follow attentively.

There is something moving, desperate and melancholic which reminds me of a more restrained version of  The Pine, as both singers puts heart and soul in their interpretation without using a too emotional layout, letting you imagine all the darkness behind their vocals instead of pouring it out.

Both tracks are memorable and captivating, leaning once again towards Low, Duster or even Empress, Movietone, Bluetile lounge or Songs of Green Pheasant. Superb.
