Gems just keep landing in my inbox lately.
Meet Observer Drift, a bedroom pop project based out of Minnesota who runs along the same vein as Teen Daze, Beach House, and even hints of Long Walks On The Beach. Music that feels nostalgic, reminiscent of childhood memories, and over-exposed pictures.
Sometimes with this particular genre it’s hard to break out of the dreamy electronic sound, songs becoming flat and sounding all the same. But, Collin Ward (Observer Drift) mixes it up quite a bit in his self-produced album, Corridors. I love the simple guitar in the track, “Letters To Myself,” and the introspective nature of the rest of the album.
Listen below, and name your price at his bandcamp site. Enjoy.
