Bodywash is a Montreal band I seem to keep missing out!
Looks they are the second band from that city to do very well. Look at Pottery.
Anyways Bodywash released the second single from their upcoming debut album Comforter which drops on August 30th via Luminelle Recordings (Part of House Arrest/Fat Possum and Gorilla vs Bear).
Produced by Braids‘ Austin Tuft, it is a lovely dreamy pop shoegaze tune.
The band had this statement about the track:
“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. Reverie wasn’t meant to progress in a linear fashion, though it’s anchored by a steady motorik beat. We expected there to be a chorus or refrain, but as it turned out, the song needed to just build to that breaking point – a kind of ‘micro chorus’ – in order to open itself up again. 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.”
