EP // Dreams – Simple Steps

Another bottle full of small gems has washed ashore from the vast sea of Bandcamp-distributed chillwave. Dreams being an un-search-able name, and my own e-mails not receiving any reply, these four songs come free of nearly any attached information. All I can say is that the music’s creator seems to be from Portugal, which would explain a terrific song title like “Step 2 (Getting Up, Moving One Feet…Starting to think in reality).”

What is left, floating out alone, are four songs that fuse hooky 80’s/90’s shoegaze hooks with simple but pleasingly assured and complementary percussion, mostly 4/4 bass thumps and sticks. None of the tracks quite reaches the 3 minute mark, and none need to.

Unambitious but perfect.

Listen; download freely.
