Azure Ray – “Scattered Like Leaves” (Stereogum Premiere)

Azure Ray will release a new album this fall, a record that symbolizes a bit of a departure from their band’s early records and their 2010 return Drawing Down The Moon. “We looked for inspiration from James Blake, Nicolas Jaar, and Apparat in keeping the music minimal and modern but still working as a textural and emotional extension of the lyrics,” the band stated in a press release. Today, we have the starry, shivering cut “Scattered Like Leaves,” which you can download in exchange for an e-mail below.
