Written and recorded following a spontaneous move from Ottawa, Ontario, to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Some Move Closer, Some Move On deals with themes of adaptation, longing, and displacement. Sonically, Lauren and co-producer Daniel Ledwell (Jenn Grant, In-Flight Safety) guide the listener through a range of sounds and musical touchstones. Throughout, Lauren s characteristic melodies share space with layers of warm instrumentation. Ambient pop-rock keeps company with softer, more poignant material. From the depths of the capacious "Standstill" to the stripped-down "Night Times" every song is a likable surprise. And somehow, an acapella hymn recorded in an abandoned warehouse blends seamlessly into the gypsy-jazz track that concludes the album.
