Toronto’s Seth Nyquist, who performs as MorMor, has been hailed a “wary” indie pop star on the rise. His smooth and explorative dream pop calls to mind the driving-with-no-hands-along-the-coast chill of artists like Tame Impala and Mac DeMarco. But where MorMor is able to distance himself from his influences is in his versatility, which is exercised several times within a single track on 2018’s Heaven’s Only Wishful. The 27-year-old might share a management team with Adele, but he also writes, performs, and produces most of his work and steers clear of the music industry’s numbers game. His goal? Maintaining a safe space so that he can continue to create sensual and existential pop.

MorMor will perform at 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 25 at El Club; 4114 W. Vernor Hwy., Detroit; 313-279-7382; elclubdetroit.com. Tickets are $15.
