– PopMatters“…dream-pop sound with elegant results…There are endless layers to unpick, where synths collide with guitars and Rosie Long Decter and Chris Steward’s vocals perfectly balance and counteract each other to ensure that you get completely lost in the magic of it all.”
– The Line of Best Fit“‘Eye To Eye’ builds beautifully under the power of its gorgeous guitar textures. A dreamy, airy vocal performance fills up the remaining space with the kind of emotionality that immediately seeps into your pores.”
– The 405“‘Eye To Eye’ is a gorgeous return, from its swooping guitar lines to those towering, cliff-face vocals.”
Montréal’s Bodywash have announced their debut LP Comforter which is out 8/30 On Luminelle Recordings. The band’s sound is a heady, gorgeous mix of shoegaze, trip hop and IDM and for fans of Beach House, Deerhunter, MBV and Slowdive.
You can also check out their new single “Reverie” which is out today on all DSPs.
The band had this statement about the track: “Reverie is a fever dream – literally. Chris first started writing the song while delirious and weak from a high fever, couped up in a small, dark-walled rehearsal space. That sense of confinement made its way into the song, a mounting tension that gives way to a manic need for release. Reverie wasn’t meant to progress in a linear fashion, though it’s anchored by a steady motorik beat. We expected there to be a chorus or refrain, but as it turned out, the song needed to just build to that breaking point – a kind of ‘micro chorus’ – in order to open itself up again. The track gestures towards a hope for something new, even if that something is just a fantasy. Its frantic escapist bent erodes distinctions between real and surreal, subject and object. All that prevails is a desire to float to the surface – whatever that surface may be.”
