Additional Information


"Just like the sprawling desert imagery the band’s music invokes, wide-open and contemplative spaces are left to linger between the notes. Comparable to the haunting depth of Beach House singer Victoria Legrand and Cat Power’s Chan Marshall, Shana Cleveland’s ghostly voice hovers above the expansive instrumental landscapes. Don’t be fooled by its laid-back, cowboy-at-sunset swagger, though—The Curious Mystery often straight-up rocks.”-A.V. Club


"Staring into tears of heartbreak, loss, mythological hallucinations, and war torn landscapes, the Singleman Affair continues upon their path of downer folk and psychedelic melancholy, preying upon their familiar cohort of influences, Fred Neil, Nick Drake, Skip Spence and John Martyn, crafting their very own sonic landscapes and vision. Unveiling a dynamic shift from the Alan Mcgee released “Let’s Kill the Summer” and its lo-fi bedroom recordings, “Silhouettes at Dawn” is a lush orchestrated arrangement, accented by diverse instrumentation bringing to mind Love's "Forever Changes", Leonard Cohen’s “New Skin For The Old Ceremony”, Fairport convention’s “Liege and Lief” or Nick Drake's "5 Leaves Left.”
