Boomkat Product Review:
Another slice of ethereal pop goodness from Canada; this one from an alluring new duo operating as Solar Years. We're really not so sure what makes Canada such a hotbed for this heady, sugar-rush sound - think Majical Clouds, D'Eon, Grimes (who even appears on 'Brotherhood') - sure, they've got epic mountain ranges for days and all the maple syrup you could wish for, but honestly, do they teach dream-pop in elementary school or something? Anyway, 'Waverly' is a real treat for anyone into the Grimes or D'Eon sounds, and clearly comparable with the neo-tribalism of Fever Ray, the haunting harmonies of Panda Bear, oOoOO's leaned beats and James Ferraro at his most emotive, sincere. Mastered at D&M for optimal effect.
