So Stressed

2015 saw the release of So Stressed’s The Unlawful Trade of Greco-Roman Art (Meredith Graves’s Honor Press label). For their following releases, the band signed to Ghost Ramp. Their current release Pale Lemon, the result of So Stressed trying their hand at crafting quiet, melodic pop songs; a big departure from their previous outputs. The record expands upon their prior arrangements of electric guitar, synthesizers, and drums by including cello, violin, flute, piano, tape loops, drum machine, pedal steel guitar, melodica, kalimba and other instruments. Kenneth and Morgan wrote this album quickly in an attempt to avoid imposing too many rules or limitations on the creative process. Recently the band shared the album track Cream & Gold, which is also available via streaming services

Morgan Fox on

“This was one of the very first songs we wrote for this album and it’s one of the most simple and bare. To me, it’s about the comfort and rapture that being with the person you love can bring. I never feel as genuinely and completely happy and safe and content as when I’m with my special someone. I really appreciate that feeling so I wrote about it. It’s very much a love song because I’m in loooooove.”
