Polifauna – “Last Days of Summer”


We have recently passed the last days of summer, making this dreamy ballad from Latvian dream-pop five-piece Polifauna a timely one, both in terms of its title and overall atmosphere. Lush vocals mix with a serene bass line, expanding upon the hook around 01:20 into a shimmering beauty with an otherworldly and ethereal quality. Influences like Mazzy Star and Slowdive are evident, with this track being a great way to usher in the calm and meditative elements of autumn. The brass around the two-minute mark, crafting an atmospheric bridge, combines with serene vocals and a very calm rhythmic push to make this track a sure winner.
