Crushed Stars / “In the Bright Rain” / Simulacra Records|
Nice and soothing stuff. All songs involve some sort of layered dreamy guitars and echoey vocals. Nothing too complex, all accessible, positive, borderline-happy chill songs. Vocals get repetitive after a while, but the background sounds remain pleasant. Probably won’t be your favorite band, but can’t possibly offend you either.
No FCCs detected.

All tracks reviewed inside.
1. 2:16 Muddled guitars, dreamy voice, chill and happy, ends a bit soon.
2. 3:29 Midtempo, overlapping vocals/guitars, simple melody.
3: *4:24 Simple - light guitar, bass, vocals. Layers a bit, slight beat, feels like you’re staring at the stars.
4. 4:39 Clean guitar! Piano, strings, light beat. This one’s a bit melancholy.
5. 4:50 Same feel, though chords get a bit more interesting in the (pre?) chorus.
6. 2:49 Vocals sound a bit too low, similar tune to the others.
7. *3:34 Bit more upbeat, midtempo, harmonies, simple
8. 3:31 Kind of piano ballady, sounds a bit cheesy.
9. *7:01 Dreamy guitar chords, 7ths, echoey piano/synth touches, goes on a while, but kinda nice closer.
