VPI Harmony is the debut effort from the Atlanta, GA-based quintet Mood Rings. And the album bears a similarity to Cut Copy’s incredible In Ghost Colours in the fact that it reveals a band with a sound that’s difficult to pigeonhole and yet consists of recognizable parts. The latest single “The Line” employs dreamy, anxious atmospherics and quick-paced drumming reminiscent of Siouxsie and the Banshees and the Cure for the first few minutes of the song before you hear a gentle bit of synth, bubbling to the surface, which propels a rather ethereal track forward. Guitars are fed played with quite a bit of bit of reverb, emphasizing the dreamy, ethereal and moody quality of the song.
