CCERULEANN is the musical project of brother/sister duo Elliott and Marilyn Baker. The siblings broke into the blog scene earlier this summer with their track, “F*cking Wind,” reaching #2 on Hype Machine. Aptly renamed to “Future Wind,” they’ve officially released the song on their self-titled debut EP out on November 16. The EP is a lush dreamscape, balancing strong synths with light, airy vocals.
The opening track “Cerulean Skies” really sets this surreal tone with its hollow twinkling and steady drum. Marilyn’s slightly affected voice adds depth while not overwhelming the melodies. They’ve done well to balance pop sensibilities with unique tones. CCERULEANN is an interesting study in experimental-shoegaze playing the cleaner, waif-like cousin to Purity Ring. They’ll be one to watch over the next couple of years, especially as they start to mature and expand on an already polished sound.
