Biography

In this age of instant gratification and music-as-commodity, the “album” seems like a lost art. However, true music lovers know that a thoughtful, coherent album provides a deeper, far more satisfying listening experience than the piecemeal playlists of today’s attention deficit-addled pretenders.

DulceSky clearly understands this. Their debut LP, Lands, is a testament to the kind of care and attention to detail that separates the musical wheat from so much vacuous chaff. Years in the making, Lands is a confident, accomplished statement of intent: DulceSky creates a world in which listeners can be happily and longingly lost.

Perpetuating the British independent music tradition that saw bands like Cocteau Twins and Felt release some of their best work on EPs, DulceSky recorded two shorter, self-contained works of their own early in their career. The Film (2003) and Media-Luna/Half-Moon 2004) EPs were neat missives on the state of the band that created a certain aura, but Oliver insists that they weren’t made to fulfill some grand design. “Every time we released an EP, it was an attempt to start recording an album,” he recalls. “But things never really worked out to keep recording in the same environment we started.” Lands proves that the EPs were a necessary stepping stone to what is hands down the band’s most accomplished work to date.

Like the best dream pop, the new album is teeming with energy while simultaneously projecting a serene, almost floating vibe.
