The blissful shoegaze outfit's breeziest and most honest effort to date... An 8 track collection that spins dream pop and indie rock sensibilities into shoegazing swirls.
CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
One of the most gripping guitar pop albums of the year
TURN UP THE SOUND
Gooey reverb and dreamy vocals, making the listener feel like they're floating on a cloud.
For all the beauty and simplicity that Souvenir Driver accomplishes it is an album that is not devoid of confrontation or difficulty. There are moments here where vulnerability and the expressions of longing are so acute, the pressure forces a breathlessness.... It’s almost too much. It’s fantastic. There’s not a weak spot in this collection – but tracks like “Dive”, “Photographs” and “Voices of a Traveler” could be played on loop until all sense of self are washed away and few would complain. The Jungian-dream quality of these tracks especially offer a disconnect and yet also a sense of belonging – the collective unconscious of all things. And, of course, they sound better played loud. Traveling quickly through the tracks it would be easy to tag this stuff as shoegaze – but quite the opposite description is required. Dream pop wonder blends with indie rock instrumentation. Elements swirl and become wonderfully dizzying – this album is a stargazer.
