"Travel the Haunted Desert Interstates with Afternoon Author’s “Gila Bend”"

Afternoon Author is a band from Phoenix, Arizona that is currently in a cycle of releasing a song every six weeks until the release of its album later in 2019. “Gila Bend” is the group’s third single and what struck me about the song was how it captured a deep sense of introspection by employing multiple layers of sounds, a variety of textures and tones that not every band would think to place in a chill track. In some ways its reminiscent of 90s indie pop weirdos like Olivia Tremor Control, at times of a non-rock Shriekback for the sheer otherworldly quality in the realm of pop. The use of organic samples and ending on a passage of what sounds like what represents the track breaking down or the tape warping down into slow motion. The song’s hypnotic intro and whispery vocals really bring you into this dream journey of a song. Get lost in the song below. - Queen City Sounds and Art

"Afternoon Author - Matchless"

Afternoon Author produce indie-electro from Phoenix, AZ. They’re currently recording an album, and will be releasing a new single every month until its release later this year. “Matchless” is the first of these singles, a strong showing that emphasizes Afternoon Author’s cohesion of downtempo and synth-pop. Citing acts like Tycho, Radiohead, Jamie XX, and Baths as influences, whose reminiscences are evident to some extent here, especially as the keys assume a more twinkling demeanor after 01:30. “Matchless” has me anticipating the singles leading up to the album, as well as the album itself. - Obscure Sound

"7 Awesome (and Eclectic) Indie Music Videos"

This indie-electro duo from PHX includes members from the band Scenery. “Matchless” marks the first single from Afternoon Author, but the word is that the band is currently at work on a full album so you can expect more singles in the months to come. Sink into the subterranean synth sounds of Afternoon Author while you follow along with the lyric video. It reads like something in between a love letter and a letter from a stalker, but I suppose some of the best ones do. - YabYum Music + Arts

"Juju (feat. zcb)"

Hey, what’s up? - Faeton Music

Afternoon Author is an indie-electro group from Phoenix, AZ. The sonic equivalent of taking Radiohead, Caribou, Baths, and SOHN and tangling them all up in your junk drawer, Afternoon Author straddles some crooked line between downtempo, synth-pop, synth-wave, and indie electronic music.

After a string of initial singles, Afternoon Author has finished production on their debut album which is slated to be released in mid-2020.
