Portland dream pop trio Blouse have released their debut album via Captured Tracks featuring ‘They Always Fly Away’. Using an abundance of loops, delay and reverb the record was self-produced. It helps when bassist Jacob Portrait is handy around the studio (also a member of Unknown Mortal Orchestra).

‘They Always Fly Away’ has a retro pop feel that wouldn’t sound out of place at a high brow fashion show. The plodding bass and vocals are offset by a growing wash of synthesizers. These work for and against the melody, eventually crashing and burning into a heap.
