You have said too much to a stranger in a bar bathroom; your back is killing you because of everything you haven't said; you've overwatered your houseplants again. Small Million is here for you. Flowing from the collaboration of longtime creative partners Ryan Linder and Malachi Graham, the Portland-based indie pop outfit welds deeply affecting sonic production to smart lyrics about intuition and inhibition, losing control and ending up in unexpected places, being willing to fuck up, bodies hurt and bodies joyful. The effect is both intimate and epic, delicate and fierce. Listen to it to ache, dance to it to heal. In the time since Small Million's last release, years of chronic pain have led lead vocalist and lyricist Malachi Graham to deep explorations of embodiment that have changed everything from her singing voice to her dance moves to her observation of human frailty. "There's one side of chronic pain that leads you towards intuition, self-discovery, and listening closely to yourself. But it also means you end up sitting on the side of the room a lot, watching people and paying attention. Also you're pissed," notes Graham. Producer and instrumentalist Ryan Linder's background as a filmmaker informs the textured richness and intelligent restraint of his song building. He approaches production with obsessive technical rigor that's always in service of centering intense emotion. Graham's clear, unadulterated vocals breathe at the heart of Linder's rich sonic terrain, drawing comparisons to The Cranberries and Florence + the Machine.
