The multi-dimensional songs of Sedgewick's debut EP "Gardens" offer gentle arcs and motion (both moving forward and pulling back, in semblance to the tide) and call forth history, a bittersweet nostalgia. Members sing of nostalgia that it is an act of “grasping at vines.” At times, the listener is situated in a park-like public space, or perhaps by a river. At other times, more organic sounds are infiltrated by the buzz of something mechanical like a heart monitor in a hospital, or the glitch of a subtle malfunction of one of the many devices on which most of our daily lives rely.
These tunes echo a circular trajectory, evoking present, past and future. This uncanny comfort doesn’t occur just because the artists who comprise Sedgewick have been making music together for many years now or because this music sounds like the craft of old friends—but because the many layers of each song guide listeners through an experience of time on a loop, a kind of sonic sympathy.
