Floating high above the living world, grey clouds cast a broad shadow amidst their otherwise ethereal existence. As such, ‘Home (Is It True?)’, the new single from Toronto’s Velvet Beach, is able to communicate a relatively delicate & nuanced aesthetic – one that walks the razor of dreamy, melancholic, psychedelic, and hopeful.
Subtle drums stabilize an enchanting pianoforte progression when an arpeggiated dance of cascading guitars & musing bass bursts onto the scene. Our vox melt into the framework, simultaneously careworn & optimistic, a depth equally revealing & secretive. Melodies push/ pull as the synths & harmonies weave their way into the broader tapestry, conjuring a resplendent display – like spinning two sticks to generate fire.
Velvet Beach is a fantastic band, and ‘Home’ is an elegantly crafted piece of post-dream-indie-alt-pop.
