I’m truly jealous that one of my best friend has just returned from exploring the beautiful country of New Zealand, and though I have no idea when I’ll get to make my way down there myself, I find it more than comforting that I at least get to listen to some of the exciting up and coming musicians that call the country home. Gifted 20 year old R&B pop singer songwriter Pelorus welcomes us into the dramatic beauty of his home country with Alive, the lead single from his debut EP. Though he’s now based in Bristol, the windswept majesty and misty ethereal vistas found on this striking debut paints a more than vivid picture of what I’ve always envisioned New Zealand to be like. Alive touches the heart with its tender falsettos and gently billowing atmosphere. It’s all a bit Vancouver Sleep Clinic like, with bits of Dawn Golden, Aquilo, and James Vincent McMorrow. Alive is out now on iTunes.
