My long-running love affair with dream/psych-pop out of the UK is long established on this site, albeit dormant for a while (life!). Thanks to Leeds-based group Van Houten for rousing me out of my slumber with their latest single, “Moon.” The track transports me right to the sunny shores of Primavera Sound in Barcelona where I could imagine hearing “Moon” emanating from speakers intermingling with the quiet blue waves on the water.
Lead singer Louis Sadler details, “When making the album, we were able to finally sculpt the vintage Hi-Fi sound that we have always been searching for but have never been able to achieve. The title is Van Houten because this is the first work we have created that truly represents our band. This new sound is the true sound of our band.”
