Active Child – She Was A Vision 7”

Listen while reading:
Actually I intended to post about some folk stuff today, but then I saw that Active Child (from Los Angeles/California) is releasing a new 7” of nice dream pop music and I thought it can just be right to post some dream pop stuff right now after I wrote about Double U’s upcoming dream pop release yesterday.
But I want to make this very short. On the 7” you find two tracks whereby the first one is the title track. It’s a nice homage to Cocteau Twins’ song Lorelei (from their 1984 release Treasure). The sound is relaxed with some really slow electronic drum presets and nice acid like synth melodies.
Track two, Voice Of An Old Friend, is more of an ambient soundscape with a melodie in the lead that would have fitted very well into some 90′s trance track. As the song goes by, more and more instruments, mostly electronic in nature, join in, creating a tune that can be called chillwave influenced dream pop or maybe the other way around. I don’t know. In any case a nice little collector’s item that comes on white vinyl and with very nice cover artwork.
