Night Flowers - "Losing the Light"

There's a lot of bands delving into the world of shoegaze and dream pop lately. The better ones keep the structure of shoegaze alive while adding in their own element. Knowing my own personal tastes, I would have assumed I'd hate a more pop infused style of shoegaze/dream pop, but then Night Flowers came along to prove me wrong.

The London band's new single, "Losing the Light," has the light, jangly guitars we have come to expect and want with dream pop. But they definitely add a slightly more mainstream, pop sound to the genre. I don't mean they go full on Taylor Swift with swirling sounds, but this is definitely a song that can help ease your kids into shoegaze. Plus, for us old fogies that have been listening to this style for 20+ years, it's always a good thing to bring in a new element, even if it's not one we'd expect to like.

You can watch the video for "Losing the Light" below. Night Flowers will be releasing their debut album this year. For more on Night Flowers, check them out on Bandcamp and Facebook.
