Modern dream pop in its latest form, best describes the mellow and floaty sounds created by Distant Correspondent, a new 4-piece band with origins all over the U.S. and Europe. The warmly received group, consisting of David Obuchowski (guitar, vocals), Emily Gray (vocals), Michael Lengel (drums, bass), and Tyler Wilcox (bass) will release their self-titled full length on October 22 on Hot Congress / Old Flame Records. For a band that started out as a secret project, things’ re going pretty well. We’re glad they’ve finally gone public. Indulge in their summery midday dream, “Badlands”— the B-side to their new 7″ Shatter coming out on Static Caravan Recordings.
