Hello again! I found this indie pop/dream pop band from England two years ago and i wanted to share their music because they have a very unique ethereal sound, i wanted to do this before but i didn’t have the opportunity until now. What i like about this band is their simplicity on their songs and the way that the female and the male voices melts together.

The songs that i like from this first album are: Crystalised – i think this song is perfect for a morning at the beach, i imagine this song as a soundtrack for a surf video, the interaction between the voices and the guitar riffs are fantastic -, Teardrops – this one have amazing guitar riffs again and the lyrics are amazing, is so depressing that is ok to hear this when you are feeling a little down-, VCR – i think this is a perfect lullaby song “you, you used to have all the answers” -,  Islands! This one is my favorite from the album! – such a joyful song! Beautiful one, great lyrics “i’m yours now…”, great rythm! A song that goes in crescendo and finish with a perfect resolution! You have to listen this one- Shelter is a good one too.
