No Windows, an Edinburgh duo made up of 16 year old multi-instrumentalist Morgan Morris and 18 year old vocalist Verity Slangen, today announce their intensely promising debut EP “Fishboy”, set for release on November 25th via tastemaker label Something.

With early demos having already built up considerable interest north of the border, alongside a performance last month at Connect Festival, they also share their debut single proper in “Shout (Red Song)”, a slice of woozy, densely layered dreampop and, as the first song the pair wrote together under the No Windows title, an apt introduction to their sound.

Self-recorded, self-performed and entirely self-produced in Morgan’s bedroom, the single marks the beginning of something new and exciting, the melody carrying the weight, their focus being on creating a feeling through the sonic composition of the song as opposed to the lyrical content.

During the process of making the EP, Morgan labelled each track with a colour purely based on the colour that the track made him think of first. Before Verity had written lyrics each early recording could be attributed to that colour rather than its eventual words, each song given a unique identity from birth.

Morgan had the following to say about the themes behind the track:

Shout (Red Song) felt loud, thrashy and noisy – which to me felt most like the colour red. Red reminds me of things that are intense like anger or love which, and while neither of those things are explored directly, they feel present as an undercurrent in the melody and sonic set-up of the final recording.”

Morgan and Verity began making music really early on at school. With Morgan in the school year below, he hadn’t really come across Verity until he found her Instagram where she’d begun posting some covers and original music. They arranged to meet and cover a Mac Demarco song one lunchtime only for it to never happen, instead heading down the musical rabbit hole that would soon lead to their own songs.
