Label: Future Force Records

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)!

Children Wax

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!
