Last yearÂ Children droppedÂ their debut-album “Great River” (check it HERE), which kinda blew my mind a bit. Really did! Â NowÂ the LA-based psychedelicÂ pop-virtuosos areÂ back with a new single, pressed onto glorious wax this time (hallelujah)!
The two psychedelicÂ dream-popÂ tunesÂ in here brings forthÂ aÂ broader, dreamy side of Children’sÂ sound, with higherÂ vocals and floating synthsÂ (picture Julian Casablancas laying vocals on some lushÂ Ariel Pink or Mac DeMarco-tune).Â The 60’s feel of the album is no longer present, and seemsÂ now to be more influencedÂ by aÂ dreamy Â modern-sound withÂ 80’s aesthetics underneath.Â Their adaptionÂ to this dream-pop/indieÂ sound makes it seem like it’s been like this for ever though, andÂ there certainly were elements of this on their previous albumÂ as well. Â I totally succumb to the sound of these two tracks, and sincerelyÂ love where they’re taking my mind!Â Oh, not to mention the outstanding cover-version of Daniel Johnston‘s Â “Some Things Last A Long Time” which is added as a digital-bonus! Â Verrry strong indeed, be sure to check it out!
