One of my favorite things in the last few years, at least so far as the progression of musical trends, is the move to craft pop music that sort of survives around the narrow tropes we’ve concocted, like in this new tune from Steve Buscemi’s Dreamy Eyes. Sure, there’s a definite pop sensibility, particularly in the way the guitar lines jangle and sparkle. But, there’s a heaviness to this tune, one that seems to exist outside our expectations of what pop music is. Part of that comes in the vocals, part of it comes in the descending of the chorus; it’s not uplifting, and yet it is. There’s a bright nature to the brooding, giving you promise through the shadows. Just happy this tune’s out there. You can find it on the band’s new Sweetie LP, which drops on February 14th via Rama Lama Records.
There’s a lot of incredible pop music coming out of Stockholm, but for me, Steve Buscemi’s Dreamy Eyes have been high upon my radar of rising stars. They’ve been popping up in the last few months with new tunes after taking a brief break from making magic; our sources have told us a full-length is lurking out there for 2020. This new tune’s full of bold pop sensibility; they toy with you almost the entire way through the track, building tension with these ringing guitars and soaring vocals. The song’s hook comes by way of the “ooh ooh oohoo” in the chorus; you’ll be hooked on the undeniably catchiness, I swear. This single’s available courtesy of Rama Lama Records.
After releasing a wonderful debut, Swedish outfit Steve Buscemi’s Dreamy Eyes are on the minds of tons who dabbled in dream pop/shoegaze. Well, it sounds like they might have an album right around the corner, as they’ve just dropped this new single on us out of nowhere. Siri Sjoberg seems to have the perfect voice for the band’s sound, able to rise above the noise and shatter it with her heavenly tones, while also careful to slink back behind the wall of atmospherics when necessary. For those of you who love pop music, but also want it to slightly shimmer in distortion will surely find you adore this band’s work.
