Harper Lee's He Holds a Flame EP continues the group's fine string of heartbreakingly good releases. It maybe even improves a bit on their gentle mix of electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards, programmed drums, and vocal harmonies with a more nuanced and arranged sound. Keris Howard's lead vocals are exactly the same as they have been since Brighter's first record way back when, brilliantly sad and sweet. The songs are as strong as ever, with the almost peppy "He Holds a Flame" and "I Could Be Wrong" sounding like indie pop classics. The rest is fine too; "William Blake" is a dramatic near-shoegaze epic and "Come Rest Your Weary Head" is a melancholy slice of indie balladry. Seeing the name Harper Lee on the cover, you know exactly what you are going to get inside. Credit the duo for keeping consistency fresh and interesting.
