It’s almost impossible not to fall in love with Carmen Pepper’s intoxicating Lana Del Rey-esque vocals, which lie in eloquent harmony with the perfectly consistent instrumentals in ‘Are You Coming Home?’. As a new member, Pepper has done well to capture the emotion felt by bandmate Dylan Ollivierre during his childhood battle with his parents’ separation; this ability has certainly solidified her role in the band.
Rainy Day Women draw influence from a number of sources, expertly cherry-picking tastes and flavours from all over to make ‘Are You Coming Home?’ an inviting treat for the ears. The Perth-based twosome have certainly made their selections well – somehow finding themselves somewhere between Sleigh Bells and Perfume Genius, which definitely makes for an interesting sound.
‘Are You Coming Home?’ is taken from the forthcoming mini-album ‘In The Right Place’.
