Southern Shores' "Night Is Young" reworks a Cathy Dennis vocal sample across a bedroom sea of pitched-down oohs and ohs that roll like a waterbed. The hardest part about describing the Berlin-via-Nova-Scotia duo's upcoming Atlantic EP—out on Cascine July 12th—is avoiding the abuse of nautical references. But fact of the matter is, the ocean vibe is real. There's something in the faux hand percussion that smells like sea salt, and a genuine little splash when the cymbal hits.
