Fanclub – “Leaves”


Fanclub are a trio from Austin, Texas, comprised of Leslie Crunkilton, Mike Lee, and Daniel Schmidt. The project channels Lee’s aesthetic leanings, particularly a fondness for catchy guitars, dance-y electro beats, and lush synths. Crunkilton’s entrancing, hazy vocals provide the perfect lead for this dream-pop aesthetic, which channels a sound very reminiscent of Japanese Breakfast. Such is evident on the excellent new track “Leaves”, which flows with an ethereal spirit that manages to be simultaneously lush and melodically riveting.

“Leaves” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2018’ Spotify playlist.

  1. Yea it’s got that dream pop and hazy vocals. Those bands are fun, like mbv with a glare, or tint, or the drinkable yogurt version of that sort. But it’s not rock and roll is it. It’s dream pop.
