Thunder Dreamer are signed to Julien Baker’s former label 6131 Records, and they share her proclivity for moody slow-burn guitar arpeggios. But whereas Baker’s music is stark and solitary, Steven Hamilton’s former solo project has expanded to a quartet capable of expansive emotional soundscapes founded in heartland indie rock — which is to say their music churns as much as it shimmers and sighs. The Evansville, Indiana combo will release their debut album Capture this spring, and today we’re sharing its title track. After a melancholy post-rock intro, the proper song rolls in on a wave of power chords and piano, Hamilton’s falsetto howls echoing across the music’s raging current. It’s lovely, so listen below.
