From Brussels (Belgium) the dreamwave duo of Juliette Bossé (Guitar / Keys / Vocals) and Kévin Mahé (Drums / Electronica) who perform as RIVE will be releasing their début LP – Narcose – on the 1st of March 2019.
The first track to surface from the album – Fauve – indicates of an album that will cosset the listener in softly spaced silken layers of immersive synthetics rounded by a mesmerising vocal that holds the mind transfixed.
The Los Angeles (USA) dreamwave creator Claire George releases the début EP Bodies Of Water on the 16th.
The softly hazed compositions have a dreamy hypnotic quality to them and the listener finds themselves being drawn, akin to whirlpool, in to the spiraling gyrations of the music and losing all sense of the travel of time.
Orbits is the second of the five tracks on the EP, which is available on bandcamp.
A mesmerising approximately thirty six minutes, ten track album (available on bandcamp), in to which the audience can feel their inner being sublimate with each becoming indistinguishable from the other.
The hypnotically entrancing combinations of various instruments, particularly the dream-state theremin and ethereal vocal drift though the room casting their bewitching spell in to which the listener pleasurably succumbs.
The fourth track Τα Μαλλιά Της (Her Hair) being my pick of the release.
The Montreal (Canada) based dreamwave duo of Catherine McCandless and Stephen Ramsay performing as Young Galaxy released their swansong three track single Snow Leopard yesterday.
As though sculpted from sand the compositions have a scooped granular texture of finest detail, which the further removed from the speakers takes on ever softer ambient flow in to which the mind becomes bewitched.
The approximately eighteen minutes single is available on bandcamp with my pick of the release being, perhaps appropriately, the closing track – Backwards Love.
Although this is the end of the road after a dozen years, the duo do anticipate creating music together in the future, though of different guise and performance name, as well as exploring other opportunities separately.
The Belgian dreamwave creator Mélanie Isaac released the EP L’inachevée on the 14th.
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.
