Dim Peaks – Slumberland

GRR032_cover_small

Much like their label mates Young Hunting, Dim Peaks have a great talent for composing delicate psych infused folk-pop rooted deep in Californian flower-power tradition. The quartet’s second single titled “Slumberland” is a soaring beauty with timeless appeal. The voice of Niilo Smeds echoes Lou Reed, while drifting gently along light touches of acoustics. Bit by bit, layers of drum, organs and keyboards are added, making “Slumberland” stumble a bit further down the rabbit hole. There is subtle melancholia present; the wistfulness of summers end, a farewell to a loved one or reminiscing with an old friend over past times, all while bathing in red-painted Californian skies. Dim Peaks is a wonderful discovery, owed to the wonderful blogs; Alphabet Bands and IGIF.

Dim Peaks are set to release their debut album, Time Of Joy on the 3rd of September via the excellent Gold Robot Records. “Slumberland” will join previous single “Reason” as part of the tracklist.
