About Azure Ray
Dream pop duo Azure Ray use graceful harmonies, patient folksy song structures, and touches of electronic production to create otherworldly songs that balance tranquility and intensity. Early albums like 2003's Hold On Love would prove to be quietly influential on waves of indie artists that followed, its soft sadness and darkly ethereal atmospheres setting a template for a specific brand of opulent melancholy. After a highly active time in the early 2000s working on their own music as well as a host of other projects related to the Saddle Creek label, the band went into hiatus. After reuniting in 2008, Azure Ray released new material at a much slower pace, with more than a decade passing between fourth album Drawing Down the Moon in 2010 and its 2021 follow-up, Remedy.
