On their new EP As Above So Below, indie-poppers Azure Ray wander through brooding soundscapes with harmonic motion, adding wispy, delicate vocal melodies to cloudy beats. Opener "Scattered Like Leaves" combines the impending doom of the repeated low-end rumble with wondrous lyrics like, "There's love everywhere," while "To This Life" marches to a deliberate tempo that drags along protracted whispers before evolving into a soothing, enchanting ride.

As Above So Below is out September 4th on Saddle Creek.
