The eight tracks on Opening, Maria DeHart’s debut LP, weave together flowing chord progressions and ethereal vocals to create an entrancing sound that brings the listener back to the nostalgia of the ’90s. The record has a hazy rock feel, featuring hints of jazz percussion and melodic basslines. Above all, DeHart prioritizes simplicity and emotional connection with the listener. The stories she tells are largely her own, based on her unique experiences with relationships. For fans of Cat Power, Phoebe Bridgers, Mazzy Star, Waxahatchee and Snail Mail, Opening is out on May 18—get it on Bandcamp.
