Drinking the Dream by Brevyn
Following Brevyn's single release on Vulpiano Records for Netlabel Day 2018, 'Sea Cave / Indigo' (vulpianorecords.bandcamp.com/album/sea-cave-indigo) comes a re-release of their delightfully summery 'Liquid Sunlight' album, complete with bonus tracks ("Drinking the Dream", "Dark Depths") and an updated track order.
More about 'Liquid Sunlight' From Brevyn:
Liquid Sunlight was inspired by synth/sequencer-based new age of the 80s and early 90s like Vangelis, Spencer Nilsen [mostly his work on the Sega CD Ecco The Dolphin music] & Suzanne Ciani. Since this sort of music is often dismissed as pure cheese I wanted to contrast that presumption by emphasizing it’s more mysterious edges.
This is not to say I think it can’t be good or effective without that sort of twist. But I also just wanted to explore that particular nostalgic yet haunting feeling certain pieces by say, Emerald Web or Vangelis captured really beautifully. You know, the twinkle of synth bells / flute in an old fantasy animation’s credits roll, which became strangely eerie as time went by and/or as the VHS got wonky. Even the way some 90s weather channel music sounds could apply. I felt sunsets were another thing I came to associate with this feeling, hence the one in the cover.
I wanted to evoke a lost paradise, one surrounded by colorful nature with something sinister at work. The genuine beauty I heard in these songs and the motivation to create something similar myself - and without irony - are big parts of what led me to make this album.
