If you read my post about the Tashaki Miyaki album, you might remember that I mentioned another dream pop album that I received on the same day. Well, I can finally share it with you! I fell in love with Morningside by Fazerdaze instantly, and was incredibly happy to be able to listen to it way over a month before it was to be released. That said, with all the time came a lot of procrastination, so when it came to writing up my review, I had listened to this album perhaps a little too much.
Morningside had become one with me so I found it a little hard to step out and listen to it objectively, which isn’t the worst thing in the world but I do wish I had made some notes from my very first listen. Simply just to track my feelings towards each song a little more as it’s not very often I have such a long time to work on a review. Nevertheless, I still love the album now and like many of the bands I have seemed to find recently, Fazerdaze really hit the nail on the head in regards to feelings and how they relate to me. Welp.
I particularly liked ‘Lucky Girl’ because it just instantly made me feel super happy, so I’ll insert it below.
This album is a beautiful coming of age tale and I definitely recommend it to anyone who is a fan of any kind of dream pop vibe. It’s lighthearted in sound but full of depth thematically. Read my review on Vulture Hound here: http://vulturehound.co.uk/2017/05/fazerdaze-morningside-album-review/
I also featured Fazerdaze on my latest Music Diary post so don’t forget to check that out too. I didn’t really go into too much detail as to why I chose to feature ‘Bedroom Talks’, so I’ll tell you now. Though it isn’t necessarily my favourite song overall, it wraps up the album perfectly, capturing every element and creating a sense of feeling at peace with all the feelings explored throughout Morningside.
