When hearing the dream pop music made by bands like Memoryhouse, there are usually two reactions: “Wow! Amazing!” or “I’m so bored.” Now, I’ll admit, with a lot of bands in this genre, I’m solidly in the bored camp. If it doesn’t have enough of a beat to keep me interested, I’m moving on the next track.
But even if you’re like me, there’s some music that deserves a second listen. One such song is Memoryhouse’s new track, “Quiet America.” It’s a short track, coming in at just over 2 minutes, but the hazy vocals and keys unite to create a gorgeous sound that leaves you wanting more. This is a track that sounds great on headphones, but one that can express its beauty even through your laptop speakers.
Memoryhouse – Quiet America (mp3)
“Quiet America” is a track off Memoryhouse’s upcoming EP, The Years, which will be out September 13th. This is actually a reissue/remastering of an EP that was put out before the duo had signed to Sub Pop, but it will include two new tracks.
