Solar Solar – Walking Like Children

Check out the adorable yet creepy sounds of Solar Solar.

They sound a bit like if Alice Glass of Crystal Castles turned into a ghost and you could only hear her charming voice from the great beyond and her backing band happened to be Portishead. Hmm, maybe not the best band analogy, but I think you get the point that I’m trying to make – Angela Drysdale has a killer voice that is exceptionally beautiful in its haunting crispness.

With stripped down beats, ethereal synths, and bass lines that pulse like a thumping heart, Solar Solar paints some serious dreamscapes, but unlike other dream pop bands, they come perilously close to veering off the edge into a hellish nightmare. Like Portishead, there is an underlying tension, malice, and ominous melancholy that make their tracks so captivating.

Their debut album Pilot is scheduled to drop on February 21st on Binary Entertainment, but in the meantime you can stream “Walking Like Children” below from the forthcoming album.
