Last year¬†Children dropped¬†their debut-album “Great River” (check it HERE), which kinda blew my mind a bit. Really did! ¬†Now¬†the LA-based psychedelic¬†pop-virtuosos are¬†back with a new single, pressed onto glorious wax this time (hallelujah)!
The two psychedelic¬†dream-pop¬†tunes¬†in here brings forth¬†a¬†broader, dreamy side of Children’s¬†sound, with higher¬†vocals and floating synths¬†(picture Julian Casablancas laying vocals on some lush¬†Ariel Pink or Mac DeMarco-tune).¬†The 60’s feel of the album is no longer present, and seems¬†now to be more influenced¬†by a¬†dreamy ¬†modern-sound with¬†80’s aesthetics underneath.¬†Their adaption¬†to this dream-pop/indie¬†sound makes it seem like it’s been like this for ever though, and¬†there certainly were elements of this on their previous album¬†as well. ¬†I totally succumb to the sound of these two tracks, and sincerely¬†love where they’re taking my mind!¬† Oh, not to mention the outstanding cover-version of Daniel Johnston‘s ¬†“Some Things Last A Long Time” which is added as a digital-bonus! ¬† Verrry strong indeed, be sure to check it out!
