If we wanted to illustrate dreamgaze, which obviously is the intersection of dreampop and shoegaze, we probably couldn't find a better example than Empty Parks, the new album by Estonian band Pia Fraus. This is music packed with blissed out vibes and positive energy, briskly paced superbly performed by musicians that have played together for over two decades. Soft harmonies, guitars and synths mesh together to create soundscapes that both sooth and inspire. Grab this album and play it loud while driving through the country. You won't be disappointed.
Pia Fraus are Eve Komp (vocals/synths), Kart Ojavee (synths), Rein Fuks (guitar/vocals/synths/tambourine/shaker/songwriting), Reijo Tagapere (bass), Joosep Volk (drums/percussion), and Kristel Eplik (backing vocals). Empty Parks is out now in digital, vinyl and CD formats via the band's own label, Seksound, and Vinyl Junkie in Japan.
