Sorrey recently released its debut full-length, In Full Bloom. It was heralded by CBC Music as a cohesively stunning dream pop album” in their Fall 2019 guide of albums you need to hear.
How do you know when to fight for a relationship or fight your way out of it? It’s the central question at the core of In Full Bloom. Wavering between the precarious warmth of being in love and the uncomfortable, dizzying feeling of leaving that love behind, Sorrey weaves a chronicle of remaining heart-strong in the face of fading romance.
Couched in shoegazey dream-pop, the songs on In Full Bloom move in step with the truthful lyricism of singer, songwriter, guitarist, and namesake Emilee Sorrey. Backed by a band of PEI musicians—Colin Buchanan, Andrew Murray, Bruce Rooney, and Luke Pound —Sorrey’s knack for wearing your emotions on your sleeve is on full display.
In Full Bloom builds on the band’s foundation of anthemic hooks and crafted melodies. Whether it’s the effervescent bounce of “Talking To Them,” the slow burn lament of “Go Get Ahead,” or the hazy pulse of “Signs,” the LP embraces the bruises that come with growing older and wiser.
Recorded, mixed, and mastered completely on Prince Edward Island, In Full Bloom is available via Garment District Records.
