Titles - SEAWAVES
There's something about really good dreampop that once you hear it, it just sort of clicks in your mind like "yes: this is awesome". This totally happened for me when I heard "Titles" by Manchester indietronica duo SEAWAVES; "Titles" is an indie pop song that sweeps you off of your feet, and carries you along a cinematic-feeling journey...what I mean is, there's an emotion, a sense of scale, and a 'just bubbling under the surface' energy to "Titles" that melds together into an especially enjoyable track.
Check out the official video below:
I really like the way "Titles" builds itself musically, while letting the vocals roll through like an indie pop dream. The production is excellent as well, as there are a lot of moving pieces here, and while they do get deliciously hazy, nothing ever gets muddled or lost (every piece of "Titles" feels like it needs to be there).
There's a good chance you have heard some of SEAWAVES' other work, as it has been utilized in a few scenarios/campaigns (I'm sure I recognize them from some NFL/NHL/Sony stuff...), but in case you haven't (or honestly, even if you have), you really should give their recently released LP The Motion Picture a listen: it effortlessly moves between genres, tempos, and feels to create a really comprehensive, and strong album.
Well, I tried my best (...like I actually have control over anything when it comes to Apple Music), and even though we are missing a couple of tracks, the DSD Playlist - Feb 17 is out now, and it's pretty damn great.
Hope you enjoy it too!
Remember, if you want me to expand where I put these playlists beyond Apple Music, you just need to let me know on Twitter, and I'll see what I can do.
Now if you'll excuse me, I feel a little weird about being that positive about some guys from Manchester, so I need to watch some highlights.
