Double Bus by Living Hour & Peel Dream Magazine









On the new single Double Bus two prominent contemporary dreampop bands collaborate to produce a folk/psychedelic dreampop example of good songwriting. Living Hour from Canada and Peel Dream Magazine from Los Angeles sound like a strong match.

A comment from Living Hour reads: "A silver lining of the past year has been that we started collaborating remotely as a band, and with other musicians. We were blown away with what came to be when we sent Joe from Peel Dream Magazine our song idea. "Double Bus" quickly formed into a dense and mystical sonic landscape with vibraphones, marimbas, bells, banjos, and strings weaving in and out of the song atop a bed of casio keyboards, drum machines and acoustic guitars. Sam and Joe's voices mesh really beautifully together and their singing styles give the song a natural, intimate, and organic sound. The lyrics came from a poem that Joe wrote while listening to a keyboard loop we made, exploring percussive sounds in words. Close your eyes and get lost in it."

Double Bus is out through Kanine Records.
