With Measured Emotion, John Moreland Hypnotizes on “Ugly Faces”

Jul 6, 2022


John Moreland continues pushing into his own sound, which seems to be this unique, creative blend of singer-songwriter sadness, striking instrumentalism, and modern production techniques. All three of those prime ingredients are on full display with the opening track from Birds In the Ceiling, a new album arriving on July 22 on Old Omens/Thirty Tigers. The lead single is titled “Ugly Faces” and it sets the expectation nicely for what promises to be a record that stands out. Measured emotion, concise playing, and entrancing production make the song fly by. Clocking in at just under three and a half minutes, “Ugly Faces” is by no means too short or too long, but Moreland’s hypnotizing ability makes it feel like it lasts no longer than a minute. Be on the lookout for a tour to support Birds In the Ceiling set to kick off in July.
