Now Playing: Bodywash – 'Reverie'

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

After falling in love with Montreal-based band Bodywash and their dreamy sound last year, they've come through with yet another impressive single with their latest track 'Reverie'. The release of the single comes alongside news that they'll be releasing their debut album Comforter on August 30 via Luminelle Recordings.

Densely packed with layered synths, spacey vocals, and ambient percussion, the song is both haunting and intoxicating.  'Reverie' also finds itself somewhere between the soothing nature of dream pop and the edginess of psych-rock. On the track, they said, "''Reverie' is a fever dream – literally. Chris first started writing the song while delirious and weak from a high fever, couped up in a small, dark-walled rehearsal space. That sense of confinement made its way into the song, a mounting tension that gives way to a manic need for release."

The band also notes, "The track gestures towards a hope for something new, even if that something is just a fantasy. Its frantic escapist bent erodes distinctions between real and surreal, subject and object. All that prevails is a desire to float to the surface – whatever that surface may be."
