Gliss – ‘Pale Reflections’

gliss-pale-reflections

Gliss have delivered their fifth full length ‘Pale Reflections’, out now via their own label Kraftwööd. It’s a heady mix of dream pop with twee appeal, drawing comparisons to Beach House and The Raveonettes. The Danish/American duo (Victoria Cecilia and Martin Klingman) have been together for decade and ‘Pale Reflections’ is a testament to their hard work. One of their best.

Savage Sister – ‘Pale Surrender’

Pale Surrender‘ is the latest single from the much-loved reverb champions, Savage Sister! The trio (Michael, Chloe and Caitlin) are one of the hardest working acts on these pages, consistently releasing quality new tunes. ‘Pale Surrender’ packages 4AD dream pop nostalgia with a contemporary approach, and of course, Chloe’s beautiful vocals. The song is taken from their forthcoming second album ‘Speechless’, coming soon via BLVD Records (home to Astrobrite, New Canyons and The Foreign Resort). Meanwhile Savage Sister’s Michael Tenzer also released an ambient solo project last month, take a listen to Eyes Behind the Veil if you missed it.

Tamaryn – ‘Cranekiss’

tamaryn-cranekiss

The lead single ‘Hands All Over Me‘ (from Tamaryn‘s forthcoming third record ‘Cranekiss’) left some fans scratching their heads. Despite the merits of the song, it was a big step in a pop-centric direction. But don’t fret, the newly posted title track should ease any concerns, it’s a stunning slice of dream pop that sits closer to the Tamaryn back catalogue (while still being a fresh and new). ‘Cranekiss’ lands August 28 via Mexican Summer.

This time last year Grave Pool posted a brilliant cover of Another Sunny Day’s ‘You Should All Be Murdered”. Remember? No? Eitherway, his debut full length ‘Mnemonics’ is out (via 80s Ladies Records) and it doesn’t disappoint. The Nashville solo artist (Devan Köchersperger) effortlessly blends jangle and dream pop into beautiful tunes like this one.
