RIYL: Youth Lagoon, Wild Nothing, The Smiths, Cocteau Twins, Twin Shadow, Homeshake
Pop out yer Hawaianas, the forecast says warm, breezy Dream-pop blowin in from Edmonton’s Tropical Harbour!
I have no clue to what the climate is like in Alberta,Â CanadaÂ this time of year, but if Mark Berg’s bedroom-projectÂ is a pointer,Â I sayÂ pack light. Sweet, warmÂ guitars and lush synths echo acrossÂ tunes crafted throughÂ a mind with a keen ear for great pop-hooks and atmosphericÂ production.Â A captivating mellow, nostalgic vibe brings forth traces of arrrangements byÂ Cocteau Twins and The Smith, while production outlines the sounds of Twin Shadow, Youth Lagoon and fellow Edmonton outfit Homeshake. Perfect wavesÂ for lazy summer days.
NOTE! This is a pre-order, Vinyl shipping around October 21st
Youâ€™re invited to Tropic Harbour, a utopian space constructed by Mark Berg for peace of mind. These bedroom pops are unabashedly dreamy. Mashed earworms and mint infused hooks blend with swooning guitar knits. The result: a levitating tincture!, a distillation of a pop pantheon that runs the course from Youth Lagoon and Wild Nothing all the way to Cocteau Twins and The Smiths.
Tropic Harbour's debut LP on 140g black vinyl.
Includes digital pre-order of Glowing Eyes. You get 2 tracks now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it's released.
