Savage Sister – ‘Wild Sleep’

SAVAGE SISTER - 'WILD SLEEP'

Savage Sister can’t be accused of going light on the reverb, if ‘Dreamfeathers’ is any example! There’s endless reflections throughout this track, with Chloe’s vocals occasionally peeking through the haze. The Chicago-based dream pop trio release their latest EP ‘Wild Sleep‘ this week featuring lead tune ‘Champagne Panthers‘. This time round Savage Sister explore new ground with meditative electronic tracks that combine drone, ambient and coldwave influences. Download or stream ‘Wild Sleep’ here.

Secret Colours – ‘Blackbird (Only One)’

SECRET COLOURS - 'BLACKBIRD (ONLY ONE)'

Described as “being the bastard seed of ’60s psychedelia and 90s britpop bloodlines”, Chicago’s Secret Colours deliver ‘Peach’ on May 28 featuring their latest single ‘Blackbird (Only One)’. While the opening bars follow convention, the latter half is where the action is. A sprawling work that journeys from prog rock to psych – for lovers of stoner rock.
