After first hearing about Bedroom, a (you guessed it) solo bedroom recording project from 16 year old Noah Kittinger from Nashville, I couldn’t tell if the name was some kind of tongue-in-cheek commentary on lo-fi bedroom projects that take themselves all too seriously (song names like “Nostalgic Feel” and “Falling” support this argument), or itself one of those projects with a straightforward, uncompromising title. After listening to his debut EP, Toys, though, I didn’t care. There’s no question about the sincerity underlying these songs.
There’s nothing too innovative about Bedroom’s bedroom music: he makes quiet (check), reverb-heavy (check), Youth Lagoon-like (double check) ballads. Plainly put: he just does it really well.
Listen to the EP below. And download it here.
And here’s the video for “Trees.”
