Laveda – “Dream. Sleep.”
Drenched in a dreamy haze, “Dream. Sleep.” is a supremely melodic effort from Laveda, a promising duo from Albany, NY. Their ’90s shoegaze influence prominent in the gorgeous textural pull of this track, where Ali Genevich’s sweeping vocals play with mysterious appeal over guitar tones that stretch from jangly understatements to shoegaze-y textural encompassing. Laveda – formed in summer 2017 by Genevich and Jake Brooks – initially touted a more singer/songwriter style in their initial days, though have expanded their sound into denser, more gripping heights over the years. “Dream. Sleep.” is a testament to that growth.
Look out for the duo’s first album release this Spring.
“Dream. Sleep.” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2019’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Shoegaze / Post-Punk / Dream-Pop.
