There’s an immediate beauty associated with opening yourself up to others. The ability to be vulnerable and to admit that maybe a bad day, or a bad year, got the better of you can be a most freeing experience, and in the case of Small Moves from Verdigrls the process proves delightfully wondrous. Following the release of their single, “Daylight Savings,” the duo is sharing their entire EP, and we’re excited to be streaming it in full ahead of its release.

Along with the woozy opening of “Daylight Savings,” this collection of 5-tracks is comparable to experiencing a musical form of magic. From the atmospheric moodiness that beautifully captures the heavy emptiness of being alone (“Small Moves”) to a fantastical bubbly examination at fictional ideals we hide behind (“Women In Fiction”), Verdigrls never hold back in the presentation of their gorgeous world.

As the pair explain in a quote below, Small Moves is meant to be its own universe; a small glimpse into the lives of these sisters. And while it’s sometimes easier to to just keep secrets and struggles to yourself, Verdigrls use the emotions that accompany depression and anxiety to build an intimate impression of who they are. Filled with the sounds of keyboards that twinkle like stars dotting the heavens of their universe and strong, resounding vocals, Small Moves is an impressionable welcome mat into the hearts of Verdigrls.

"Small Moves chronicles the past 6 years of writing this EP, from staring out of the windows into the forest behind our childhood home, to finding ourselves and our sound living in New York. Small Moves is a story of our struggles with anxiety and depression. Sometimes it hindered progress but we still were able to move forward. Even though they were baby steps, they were still steps in the right direction. We created an intimate world that both of us, as sisters, exist in. Our universe consists of the bedrooms and living rooms where we recorded, produced, and mixed this EP ourselves. It’s a glimpse into the inner lives, the invisible progress, and our love of music and each other."
