Far from being unfinished, the alluring five track EP has a lustrous elegance to it within which the listener finds the rough edges of the day gently melting in to a mellifluous flow of electronica, instrumentation and the absorbing vocal.

Jamais Sans Raison is the middle composition.

Princess Chelsea – I Love My Boyfriend – Audio

Back in 2015 the New Zealand dreamwave project Princess Chelsea last featured. On the 7th of September the LP The Loneliest Girl will be released.

With a greater emphasis on instrumentation than previous features the first track to surface from the album, I Love My Boyfriend, which was released on the 22nd as a standalone single and is available on bandcamp, opens with a bulging bass-line (how could I not be enamoured?) prior to dissolving in to a dreamlike composition that unfurls as though in slow motion, in to which the mind becomes entranced by the hazy soft brushes of the song.

The almost three year gap in last being featured coincides with the release of the LP The Great Cybernetic Depression rather than purely my own incompetence.

Heavy Lids – Neon Graffiti – Single Review

The English dreamwave quintet Heavy Lids released their début single Neon Graffiti on the 8th.

Heavy Lids have flown under the radar since their appearance towards the end of last year and with fortune this single will mark a step change in visibility. It is very easy to overlook Sheffield, their hometown in England, for its musical heritage and spread of international influence. To do so is somewhat shortsighted as is, in my view, the potential for these five.

Neon Graffiti is a track which immediately seeps deep in to the listener as the combinations of slowcore synth, gazey guitar and ethereal vocal rotate around subtle, yet demanding bass and percussion. I posit Heavy Lids are a band to get to see now in the early stages of development prior to needing to take out a loan to afford to see them perform live in a few years time on much larger stages.

The latest track, Dans Le Feu, wraps the listener in a layer of sumptuous scented oils which feed through the torso like a skilled massage wafting away the knots of muscle contractions and leaving the listener in relaxed and quiet repose some little while after the notes have faded far in to the distance.
