Manor – Can you hear me talking at you

Manor, a duo comprising Nathaniel Morse and Caitlin Duff, was formed in 2011 and live in Melbourne, Australia. The songwriting partnership has thus far spawned three singles, Rhodesia, Afghan Hound and Architecture, whilst Manor write purposefully towards a debut EP. All three singles are out now. Manor compose songs loyal to the timeless principles of pop composition yet without fear of complicated arrangements and intuitive instrumentation. An intriguing combination of the conventional and the experimental, the known and the new.

Manor - Can you hear me talking at you

Owing to an affection for classic rock, their songs bear distinguishable nods to the Beach Boys, as well as psychedelic luminaries Pink Floyd, while equally influenced by the avant-garde leanings of contemporaries Animal Collective and Grizzly Bear. In Morse’s hands intertwining guitar lines are woven into walls of sound upon which Duff, who owes much of her gifted soprano to Kate Bush and mid-nineties trip-hop, bestows enchanting melodies that can turn from saccharine to achingly heartfelt on the head of a pin.

Manor – Can you hear me talking at you

Manor: Can you hear me talking at you Lyrics:
You’ve journeyed far across the universe, you’ve seen more than most
And set your sights on an illusive prize, battling with your ghost

Can you see it? Can’t see you’re the messenger
Can you see me? Can you hear me talking at you?

vision of a gentleman, say you like it rough
And always swallowing the better pill, isn’t love enough?

Can you see it? Can’t see you’re the messenger
Can you see me? Can you hear me talking at you?

Can you see me? (x4)

Can you see it? Can’t see you’re the messenger
Can you see me? Can you hear me talking at you?
