“Dissociating with Passion” is an invigorating alt-rocker from LVRS, a queer band based in Lansing, MI. They describe the track as “about looking at the positive side of losing ourselves and finding identity doing the things we love.”
Slabs of guitar distortion complement a fervently escalating vocal presence, expressing a yearning to “make something real before it ends.” The ensuing, textural chorus — “days go by,” — proves gripping, exuding a shoegaze-tinged envelopment. “Dissociating with Passion” is a nostalgic, hypnotic rock success from LVRS.
