When we brought you "Synthetic Fabrics" from Elizabeth Moen last month, I described it as having "... elements of indie rock, pop, soul, and garage rock." Her latest single, "Wherever You Aren't," is a much straightforward song. This one is more of a singer/songwriter track with touches of country and folk. The focus of "Wherever You Aren't" is Moen's vocals, which are both powerful and absolutely lovely. She has the type of voice that's going to suck you in, and considering how stark the instrumentation is on this song, your vocals just command attention. This is reminding me a lot of First Aid Kit and their traditional folk goes pop sound.
