about

"A similar dissonance can be felt in Seattle dreamwave quartet Medejin’s new single. Titled “World’s Fair,” the song barrels in with a bright and sunny, almost surfy, disposition but a dark cloud looms and slowly envelopes the song by the end. Like their ethereal forebears Cocteau Twins and PJ Harvey, Medejin may not be capable of making a truly “happy” song and I’m quite okay with that." - Jasmine Albertson, KEXP

"As drummer Matthew Cooke tattoos the skins with a complex pattern, guitarists Rebecca Gutterman and Taranto pluck a constellation of gorgeous spangles. Taranto's voice is a silky, languorous delight, and the whole thing recalls Cocteau Twins, but without the booming beats and million-dollar production values. "World's Fair" is a dreamy sigh of a song." - Dave Segal, The Stranger

lyrics

Hallelujah you sang us the whole way through
Your chorus in high school at the 64's World's Fair

Are you the hummingbird that flew around my head?
Cuz I'm suffering with where to find you in the dark

Are you the hummingbird or the green glowing lights washed on the shore and the land?
Cuz I'm suffering with where to find you in the dark
