A magnetic dream-pop sound enamors on “Lavenderbees,” a new track from Coucou Babe, a duo from Nashville, Tennessee and Vienna, Austria. A compelling “look on your face,” refrain stirs alongside textured guitars and steady rhythms, with the vocals balancing dreamy subduedness and smitten excitability as this refrain takes hold. The verses move with a dreamier glow, with comparisons to warming summer days adding to the relaxing soundscape. Fans of Beach House, and quality dream-pop in general, should certainly take notice.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2023’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Dream-Pop.
