venetian skies / sandunes
great pop supplement
rich in kaleidoscopic soft psych hues with cyclical drones & hazy lo-fi summery vocals, both tunes here hint at a gorgeously understated brand of dream pop.
the bands’ description of their music being ‘almost overly exposed & out of focus’ comes pretty close but comparisons to super furries & flaming lips also ring true. ‘venetian skies’ is dreamily perfect with its double ‘a’ side ‘sandunes’ featuring the over exposure the band refer to- in this case a hugely skew-whiff keyboard riff holding the piece together with it’s off kilter production techniques, like joe meek at his most whacked out perhaps. a fine debut 45 in die cut sleeve on the ever dependable great pop supplement in a pressing of 300.
