Music review: Tamaryn’s “Dreaming the Dark”- a pleasing collection of dream pop and darker explorations

I randomly discovered New Zealand born Tamaryn on a generated playlist on some music streaming service, probably based on a shoegaze/dream pop search. It was 2012 and the song was 'Love Fade', two years after its album "The Waves" was released. It was a balancing dose of resounding jangly guitar riffs and seraphic synths pulled … Continue reading Music review: Tamaryn’s “Dreaming the Dark”- a pleasing collection of dream pop and darker explorations

Music review – Pastel Ghost’s “Ethereality” a splendid new release

Listening to Pastel Ghost's "Ethereality" the follow up album to 2015's "Abyss", one noticeable change between the two is the new release's removal or - at the very least - the minimal use of dark bass-like organs and trance synths which wavers between dark electronic and witch house.

Then the typical … Continue reading Electronic artist Suicideyear’s “Color the Weather” worth more than a listen
