Through a blend of understated rock, baroque pop and wide-skied
atmospheres, The Ophelias explore the juxtapositions of youth in
their album Almost. Produced by Yoni Wolf (WHY?), the new album Almost glides
between palatial assuredness and pallid introspection, looking back
on youthful yearning-the uncertainties, the traumas, the anxieties-without
discounting its soft beauty. The Ophelias steer Almost
through the lineage of coming-of-age confessionals, and affectionately
document their growth into a warm, fractured adulthood.
