The Natural Order of Things

The second EP and fifth release from Seattle’s Trespassers William doesn’t mess with their time-tested formula. It’s yet more spacey, dreamy pop, delivered with winsome detachment by Matt Brown and Anna Lynne Williams, the duo at the heart of the band. But reinvention isn’t always needed (or wanted), especially when Trespassers William deliver these five shoegaze numbers with wit and style. While they throw in little changes here and there (some echoing drums on “Red”, an anthemic melody on “Sparrow”), the song remains basically the same. But for fans of ethereal bedroom pop, The Natural Order of Things offers a perfect solution for dodging the summer sun: just pull up the covers, turn up the stereo, and enjoy.
