"Destroy" by Saskatchewan // Occasion (Out Now via Father/Daughter Records)
Saskatchewan has finally dropped their long awaited debut album and it’s a gorgeous blast of sweeping dream pop jams, with just the right amount of jangle in the beat to keep the feet moving. There’s not a sour note on the album which makes it hard to pick a standout, but “Destroy” is certainly the track that grabbed me first and has demanded the most replays the past 24 hours. The track kicks off with a driving beat and lonely guitar lines, but is soon overflowing with choral sighs, twinkling synths and a dreamy vocal melody that embeds itself into your brain. I’ve been humming this thing all day long - when i’m not playing it loudly and singing along. It’s a fantastic track from a stunning debut album which is now available for streaming and purchase at Bandcamp. Highest recommendation for fans of Wild Nothing, Beach Fossils, and Craft Spells.
