Savage Sister – ‘Speechless’

savage-sister-speechless

Savage Sister is known for their densely textured dream pop and indulgence in never ending reverb! Last year the Chicago outfit shared the ‘Cocoon’ single and this week dropped their latest full length ‘Speechless’ (available here)! The trio harken back to late 80s dream pop with punchy drums, and somewhat elusive compositions with heavenly vocals. Savage Sister’s Michael Tenzer has also been busy of late with the side projects Eyes Behind The Veil and Lazy Legs.

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.

Eyes Behind The Veil – ‘Besides’

eyes-behind-the-veil-besides

Michael Tenzer (of Savage Sister / Wild Patterns) has produced a beautiful ambient / drone album under the moniker Eyes Behind The Veil. The Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist combines hazy guitars, synths and vocals on ‘Besides‘ with cinematic effect. It’s no pop album, but it’s still surprisingly melodic. Listening to ‘Dream Idols’ is like taking a warm bath! For fans of White Poppy, Grouper or Benoit Pioulard.
