Dream-pop trio Isla Invisible premieres cathartic video for "Pillow"

This past October, dream-pop trio Isla Invisible introduced us to their hypnotic sound through the release of their debut EP. On Thursday, the band gave us another peak into that world with the release of the video for single “Pillow”. Shaped by incandescent, shoegazey melodies and support from atmospheric guitars reminiscent of bands like Beach House and the Cocteau Twins, the track is strikingly complimented by surreal footage from Puerto Rico, where the group first formed before relocating to NYC. Faces warp, sunlight blurs the vision, and everything feels only half-real, like a mirage of a memory remembered in the present. The video captures the melancholic feeling of reminiscing about the past - but here, the “invisible island” conjured by Isla Invisible’s music becomes more than a memory, but a place to return to, and to reconcile with. Check out “Pillow” below. - Sunny Betz

Hot Flash Heat Wave Releases Mood Ring EP Feb 15

After the “Sky So Blue” single released last month we were excited for Hot Flash Heat Wave’s EP release on February 15th. Praise Prince above we were not disappointed. Tracks are refreshingly varied and full of life, from surfy psych rock to electro pop-rock. Songs have similar feels as Animal Collective but with a touch of Smith Westerns and an Italian pop vibe. Can you picture it? Probably not but listen and discover what we’re putting down here. An EP favorite, “Floating,” starts with a chugging guitar moving with distorted spacey vibrations that gives the same feelings as the song’s title. Hot Flash Heat Wave kicked off their tour last night at The Independent and are about to glide across the states. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

"Too Young To Go Steady" - Shoegaze track "Genevieve" featured on Kim's Convenience Season 3!

Too Young To Go Steady are a five piece dream pop band here in Toronto. They released their debut EP “Dropout” last summer. This album is full of shoegaze and reverby pop goodness. Very atmospheric. There is a peaceful calmness to their songs. A couple tracks from this EP are going to be featured in episodes of the upcoming season 3 of Kim’s Convenience on CBC. One of the featured tracks is “Genevieve”. The video is directed by band member Carlos Coronado and contains footage from Toronto, Vancouver Island and the Yukon. Too Young to Go Steady play live at Junction City Music Hall on February 9th with Bredren, Runnymede and more. – Kris Gies
