SILVER SWANS Secrets (Self-released)
I want more. Or is it all just a dream?
Apparently, it is not. It is Secrets, the new record from Silver Swans, a duo from San Francisco, California, formed in 2007 and made up of members Ann Yu (singer, songwriter) & Jon Waters (DJ producer).
The 5-tracks EP may be short on quantity, but that sure doesn’t compromise the quality of the music.
In a reverie-like, dream pop style similar to that made popular by Beach House’s 2010 record Teen Dream, and adding the extra touches and elements of electro beats and sounds, the music of Silver Swans is thereby firmly established. It is thus no wonder that they have been compared to the likes of Beach House, Chairlift, Asobi Seksu, School Of Seven Bells, The Knife and Ladytron – famous indie bands that most hipsters would have probably heard of in recent times.
As I am being exposed into the music world of Silver Swans in their latest EP offering, the dividing line, as well as the visions of life and dreams blur indefinitely, and it feels as though I am being transported into another world filled with overshadowed sceneries and motions, otherwise a journey into the unknown.
So for now, dream on.
