TRACER AMC – Pelican e.p. – Drowned in Sound Review
Drowned in Sound, Sara El-Hanfy
It’s a cold, dark night. You see your breath in the air as you walk through the streets. The stars above you twinkle and you’re full of hope. No words could sum up how you feel; this is where Tracer AMC come in. Think the glorious understatement of Low, the obvious instrumental similarity with Mogwai but more so the increased orchestral development of the Come On Die Young album, the twinkling pianos of Mercury Rev (although you’ll have to imagine those pianos sounding like glockenspiels). Add a touch of Galaxie 500 and you’ll have the dream-worthy tracks of Tracer AMC. Magical.
