Zephyrs – “Order of The Arrow” – [Debacle Records]

Teenage duo from Redmond, WA release their first major breakthrough and possibly final album as guitarist and singer Pierce Adler prepares to leave for film school in NYC, leaving drummer Cameron Case home to work with another local band. Longtime friends, they’re visibly clinging to their childhood years together, lost in their naivete and carefree lifestyles. Songs reflect coming of age themes, friends come and gone, and an intense yearning for escape from life’s decisions into the Pacific Northwest wilds. Hard driving rhythms from Cam support the watery pop melodies and distant vocals from Pierce, swirling in his own droning reverb like a thick mountain fog. They offer dynamic sections in between and within verses that keep your ears hooked with some tracks taking a more bouncy, catchy approach (4, 5, 7) while some others sway like ridgeside Evergreens (2, 6, 8). The final track begins with a Boy Scout campfire song to the tune of Oh Christmas Tree and leads into an epic, moody closer. Pure nostalgia…
