Sea Span is a US dreamwave project which first featured early last year.
The latest song to surface New Year’s Day (available on bandcamp) is not a seasonal festivity rather named as such because the lyric was written on January the 1st of this year and a song of reflective introspection pondering about the opportunities at the opening of every day contemplating whether prior events will conspire against or coalesce with – on heading in to the daily realities of life.
A wistful melancholia drifts through the ears which captives the audience as the querulous optimism is equally interspersed with a pessimistic stoicism.
It has been approaching a year since the Russian dreamwave outfit Наадя (Naadia) last featured.
The newest track – Облака (Clouds) – is borne through the room in contrasts of the flexing muscles of bulging bass-loops and the fragile feathering synth through which the vocal hovers like a bird flighting in and out of focus through sunlight and occlusions of broken stratus.
The USA based dreamwave project Denisse Takes is planning on releasing the LP Release next year.
Three tracks from the forthcoming release have been packaged as a three track single Fever which having had the opportunity to hear, attests to an LP of creamy-ethereal countenance to add to the collection.
One other song that has been made available for reveal – Surround Me Now, which is my pick of the four – leaves the listener sensing they are drifting through the interstellar cloud of a Nebula.
The Sweden / England based dreamwave duo San Jua were introduced earlier in the year.
San Jua – In The Teeth Of
With a more dynamic range than their music previously featured. The latest track, which surfaced yesterday, In The Teeth Of retains a luscious dreamy web of synthesis whilst there is a tauter instrumentation and fired percussion giving the song a deeper imprint through which the spectral vocal shimmers and subtle key-change affords the composition an every changing texturing.
