Wistful pop and summer days seem to be at the forefront of No Vacation’s new single. Accompanied by a suitably light video clip (available via the embedded box below), the dream pop act invite you to explore their ‘Mind Fields’…
The track comes from their forthcoming album, to be released in June 2017. Regarding the video clip, in the band’s own words, “It’s about realizing that nothing is ever as good as it seems, yet embracing the freedom of letting it all go.”
Starting out as a bedroom project, Kent’s Tokyo Tea Room later grew into a fully fledged band. Their music draws a huge influence from various 90s alternative and shoegaze sounds, while vocally they take in elements of dream pop and twee underground acts.
Their debut cassette, ‘Key Philosophy’ was released via Sexx Tapes in June 2016. Check out the video for ‘Sleep’ below.
Originally self-released, this debut EP from Manon Meurt finally gained a bigger distribution after being picked up for vinyl release via Label Obscura, a Canadian based label in 2016. It’s great that these Czech dream poppers are given the opportunity to branch out and reach new ears, since in terms of style, things don’t often come much finer. Their six track wax takes in so many great dream pop and shoegazy moods over the course of approximately half and hour; their pensive and droning sounds appear wholly nostalgic and (mostly) quite brilliant.
