Character, variety, and drama lift this Athens, Ga., quartet's debut EP beyond the realm of high indie mundane. Driven by a reverberant piano riff and Emily Braden's faraway, twang-tinged vocal, "Let It Bleed" documents the darkness of disconnection via a Southern gothic haze. "Oh Honey" takes a sprightly turn, employing an incipient guitar hook, synth flourishes, and loads of sass to make this kiss-off kill with pop kindness. Braden proves equally adroit delivering elegiac torch song sentiments on "I Wish Nothing" before the whole band builds to a fever pitch for closing number "Wring Me Out." (11:30am, BMI stage; weekend one only)
