Leeds indie psyche trio The Calls release their third EP `Setting Sun` following previous releases `The Night The World Stood Still` and `Fall Inside Again`.

This extended play opens with `Until It`s Time` which is a dreamy number that seems to encourage us to maybe take our time and wait for the right moment in life. A quite mesmerising slice of Brit pop. We have further shimmering guitar riffs on the melodic `Out Of Reach`, a relatively wistful offering.

There`s a kind of distant rumbling at the beginning of `Into The Day` as the music blossoms and the track becomes somewhat contemplative. There are some fairly intricate guitar chords shared on route . We enjoy a more languorous or enervated vibe with `Everything’s Alright` and its glimmering guitar chords. The song becomes quite otherworldly as it progresses.

`Way Far Out` has a quite  psychedelic opening before reverting to a more pensive or reflective ambience. This release closes out with title track `Setting Sun` with a rolling beat that becomes pretty trippy as the song continues it`s journey. A spacy number to close out on.

The trio of Tom Fuller,  Will Johnson and Marcell Haslewood who are the Calls deliver what was, for me, an interesting and enjoyable introduction with their dreamlike and at times spellbinding Britpop tinged sound and I look forward to monitoring their future progress.

Rating 8/10
