dd I was gonna plug this in the Hipsterjustice thread at some point when I had the time/energy, oh well.
@Andy French@HeartSwells@Jwentz@A&E and other resident shoegaze-clique members, this is like a summery dream-pop redo of your favourite Coldplay jam, should such a thing exist. It's kind of literally been perking my days up a bit since I found it.
I think “happy” is the best way to describe her music. Sure is excellent and Sugar & Spice is brilliant too! They’re very 90s but you could also hear them on a soundtrack of a romcom released today. I love that she’s bringing back this sound.
I completely agree, we need someone like her in the pop landscape and we need music like this. It perfectly encapsulates that throwback/nostalgic thing she’s going for and it just transports you back to that place.
I’m hesitant to define it all as “very 90s” even though much of it is, but Sleep has many elements that draw from the 80s as much as the 90s.
