Vanderlay Shares 'Doubtful Sound', A Sonic Odyssey of Emotional Depth

Melbourne/Paris-based artist Vanderlay has unveiled his latest masterpiece, the EP 'Doubtful Sound,' a meticulously crafted collection of six songs that weave an intricate tapestry of sonic textures and emotional resonance.

Building upon the momentum of his acclaimed singles 'Assimilate Strangely' and 'Triumph and Disaster', Vanderlay (the musical moniker of singer-songwriter Caspar Conrick) delivers an EP that is both mystifying and comforting, showcasing his evolution as an artist.

'Doubtful Sound' is a testament to Conrick's meticulous approach to songwriting and production. Drawing inspiration from musical luminaries such as Dylan, Morrison, and Mitchell, as well as contemporary artists like Aimee Mann and Fleet Foxes, Conrick has honed his craft over several years, resulting in an EP that feels cohesive and interconnected. "The songs on Doubtful Sound came up in tandem, over the course of several years; they speak to one another," Conrick explains.

The EP's sonic landscape is a captivating blend of delicate guitars, evocative string arrangements, poignant piano passages, and off-kilter drumming. Vanderlay's gorgeous vocal harmonies further enhance the emotional impact of the music, creating a listening experience that is both musically stirring and emotionally poignant.

Recorded at The Aviary Studios in Abbotsford, Melbourne, and mixed by Fraser Montgomery with mastering by Adam Dempsey, 'Doubtful Sound' is a testament to Vanderlay's commitment to sonic excellence. "'Doubtful Sound' feels like the record I've been trying to make since I started writing music," Conrick reveals. "It feels like my most personal and coherent work yet."

Vanderlay's previous releases have garnered over 55,000 streams on Spotify and received support from radio stations like PBS, RRR, FBi, 4ZZZ, 2SER, Triple J, and many more. With 'Doubtful Sound,' Vanderlay solidifies his position as a rising star in the music world, offering a sonic odyssey that invites listeners to imprint themselves on its emotional landscape.
