"Bodies" by Pale Seas // "My Own Mind" b/w "Bodies" (2012)

The new Pale Seas single, “My Own Mind” comes backed with the b-side “Bodies”, which has been on repeat in my head for the better part of the past few days. Fans of the band will immediately recognize the band’s lovely acoustic dream pop sound, but something just clicks on “Bodies”, and I find myself clicking over from “fan” to “mildly obsessed”. The jangly guitars and gorgeous harmonies are front and center, but it’s that melancholic melody that just demands multiple replays. It’s like The Sundays and The New Pornographers melodic sensibilities fused with Real Estate and “Bodies” came out. Okay, maybe i’m reaching - it’s just an absolutely stupendous bit of dreamy folk pop. Highest possible recommendation for fans of Real Estate and Memoryhouse
