Listening to Springtime Carnivore, a.k.a. Greta Morgan, always feels like wandering through a memory with a friend. Her new track, “Name on a Matchbook,” once again serves up sounds of her lovely, nostalgia-inducing pyschedelic crackle. Produced by Richard Swift (The Black Keys, The Shins, Foxygen), the song conjures a scene of fantasy, one for a dreamy stranger you once connected with at a bar, only to walk away with a scribbled-on paper matchbook and the thought of much more. It’s a story of effervescence and simultaneous strength, one that you won’t mind getting stuck in your head for an entire day. Fortunately for us, Springtime Carnivore means our pop is about to get a bit more folksy, and our shoegaze is gonna be a bit more steeped in daydreams.
Her new self-titled debut is out 11/4 via Autumn Tone Records.
