Serene Dream Pop from New Zealand by French for Rabbits
Here’s my hit replay album of the day, maybe the month. This is yet another wonderful band from New Zealand which is starting to give Iceland a run as the-little-island-country-that-could. The New Zealand alt/pop duo of Brooke Singer and John Fitzgerald create a delicate, folk-based dream pop that makes you want to wallow in melancholy because they do it so beautifully. The have a new album called Spirits that holds you from the opening title track to the closing reverie, “Seafarer.” Here’s a video from it that isn’t even the best track on the album. It’s on a label I hadn’t heard of, Lefse Records which has a few other similarly inclined artists like A Sunny Day in Glasgow and Sea Oleena.
