VHS Dream – ‘Departure’

vhs dream-departure

Husky Recordings have delivered VHS Dream‘s slow motion stunner ‘Departure‘! The album is loaded with daydream-inducing dream pop, which kicks off with the single ‘AEIOU’. The Melbourne based-duo is Mayzie Wallen and Matthew Hosking. Victorian shoegaze fans should be well acquainted with Matthew’s work already; having produced releases for several Aussie acts including Hideous Towns, Bloodhounds On My Trail, Lowtide, Miniatures, Glaciers and Contrast. It’s no surprise that the mood setting ‘Departure’ sounds fantastic, a cinematic collection of ambient pop. Its well paced with several short interludes that help to break up the downbeat feel. The guy / girl vocals provide needed variety, as they share lead vocal duties from track to track. At times these melodies do get a little pitchy but it suits the woozy feel. It’s been a strong year for dream pop fans, and now VHS Dream have added to the already long list of “must check out” records.
