It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from dream-pop newcomers Lovelier Other, who bestowed the blog-o-sphere with their lush debut track, “Leave this Behind” last winter. Fear not, for the shy duo has returned with their third track, “Wonderkind”, which premiered courtesy of No Fear of Pop.
“Leave this Behind”, which generated thousands of plays in a matter of days was described by the influential Crack in the Road as “Silky smooth vocals and a Beach House aroma …it’s bloody brilliant pop music,” while fellow UK tastemakers The 405 observed that, “A lot of thought and attention was put into ‘Leave This Behind’, which unfortunately can’t be said for the majority of ‘Soundcloud fodder’ that occupies similar territories.” February saw the return of the duo courtesy of the band’s gorgeous second offering “Hidden Shelters”, a song called “Ornate and fragile” by Pitchfork.
“Wonderkind” will be featured alongside the two previously released tracks on a self-released EP titled Effort, later this year. Please stay tuned for more details regarding its release.
:: PAST PRAISE ::
“‘Hidden Shelters’ is an equally gorgeous gem with a heartbreaking vocal melody that feels softer than silk.” – Portals
“Delicate electronics and symphonic elements paired with some intriguing vocals has me anxious to hear more. – Pasta Primavera
“This dreamy track flew into my inbox the other day…It’s definitely got that Sigur Ros softness. I don’t know much else about this band but I’m looking forward to hearing more.” – Friends with Both Arms
“The vocals are placed high in the mix, surrounded by aqueous synth patterns (the kind The Antlers would be jealous of) and big, grand synth sections. Sonically, it ties together so many loose ideas. So it takes a couple of listens to adapt to. But eventually it proves itself right up there with debut track ‘Leave This Behind’. – THIS IS FAKE, DIY
A track that is equally contemplative. Hidden Shelters is a mini symphony that works its way gracefully through muted organ chords and spiraling vocals to a mid point that introduces darker overtones of synth sparring with strings, the organ coming to the fore to evoke a vaulted chamber of sound. – Vader Evader
