Woman’s Hour, a London-based band, has created a sleepy indie pop album that is perfect for lazy summer nights on your balcony. The album is compiled of silky sounds and simple lyrics, making it irresistibly easy to listen to. With a similar style to The xx and emotional lyrics akin to Bastille, I could see Woman’s Hour becoming the next indie sensation overnight. This group is well-known for their visual art as well as their sound; when listening to Conversations, it is possible to let the music create images in your mind (depending on how good your imagination is).

These airy tunes are not the kind to get stuck in your head or blasted at a club, yet they have a special way of haunting you. Woman’s Hour haunts you emotionally: their album Conversation melts into your subconscious leaving an echoing mark of its presence. This album is one that can be played softly in the background while guests are over or can be the soundtrack in a Montreal café.

It is a very solid B album, very easy to listening but not very exciting. If you are looking for a relaxing album, or want to be ahead of the indie pop crowd I recommend picking this one up.

Women’s Hour is out July 15.
