A good piece of shoegaze/dream-pop instrumental music which isn’t too obvious or overly monotonous is very hard to come by. However, Chicago’s Pale Coast‘s latest track ‘Taupe‘ gets the balance just right. With equal measures of twinkling synths to reverb drenched atmospherics and jangly melodies, ‘Taupe’ is unique in its own right whilst still containing streaks of nostalgia. Unfortunately there’s not much information out there on Pale Coast, but there is a whole back catalogue of dream-pop goodness just waiting for you on their Soundcloud page.
