Single Review | 'Sparjammer 67' | Talking Violet (2018)

If Best Coast and Lush (the band, not the soap) had a child, it would be Talking Violet. Taking the conventions of shoegaze, dream pop, and noise rock, Talking Violet are ruling the roost when it comes to combining genres. 'Sparjammer 67', taken from their 2018 EP Round Dreams, paints an introspective, dreamy image that will instantly transport you back to the 90s thanks to that delightful feedback and reverb. 

Described as a song that is "meant to serve as an illustration for something that glows in the darkness" of Toronto, Talking Violet capture that specific essence and transform it into something that anyone exploring the world at sundown can experience. 

That's the beauty of genres like shoegaze — emotions pour so easily from the use of existential textures and flurries of sound that it's hard not to feel captivated by tracks like 'Sparjammer 67'. If Talking Violet continues like this, I hope there's going to be a resurgence in shoegaze and dream pop — I need it. 

Talking Violet's EP Round Dreams is available to stream and download now.
