Album: Sun Shy EP
Release Date: September 3rd, 2013
Earlier today, I was just surfing the internet looking for a new artist to discover because it’s 2014 and we all need new music to listen to, and then I stumble upon this fresh indie-pop band called Dresses from Portland, OR consist of duo-musicians Timothy Heller and Jared Ryan Maldonando. The album opens with the track “Back To Life” that blown me away because they are really good. They sound like a perfect combination of Seattle-duo He Is We and She and Him together.
The album makes me fall in love with them deeper and deeper with more awesome tracks like “Blew My Mind”, “Painting Roses”, “Tell A Lie”, and more. With lovable, easy listening, and indie pop sound, they give us a perfect songs that tells about love, life, and friendship. One of the reasons why this album is amazing is because their beautiful lyrics, like for instance: “I try to sleep but then I wake up // When you’re gone, I really hate my dreams//All along, I try to live but then I think too much//Because most of the time all the thoughts in my mind get to me.”
If you have never enjoyed Dresses before, I strongly suggest you checking this record out, because it’s the first album that I listen in 2014 and it’s awesome. (By Seanzha Kemal)
