Dreams "Swimming in Pink Waters"
We're used to listening to the more hyperactive side of Portuguese music over here at XLR8R HQ, but we'll take a fresh breeze of sounds from our Iberian friends any day. The latest gust from overseas comes from chillwave-y duo Dreams, and its recently released Forgotten Thoughts EP, which gets a digital release on January 4, 2011. The song, "Swimming in Pink Waters," swirls all about your head with hazy atmosphere, paper-thin vocal transmissions, and a handful of airy synth melodies, like it haphazardly collected all of its sounds while wafting over to our continent. We'd probably be more inclined to qualify Dreams' EP opener into the ambient genre if it didn't have the straightforward dance beat at its center, but we like this piece of amorphous pop all the same.
