Tape Waves - Bright


Tape Waves have released a delectably atmospheric dream pop album for the summer. Bright lives up to its name -- full of sun-drenched vibes, shimmering melodies, fuzz, and a dose of shoegaze muscle. Its sonic palate shares space with Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine. But the the perspective of songwriters Kim and Jerod Weldin seems much sunnier than those predecessors. The laid back approach notwithstanding, this is a serious and complete work with more variety that the listener might initially expect. Perfect for a summer day, you may also pull it out in the fall or winter to help recall warmer days.

Bright is Tape Wave's fourth album, and is out now via Emotional Response Records.
