Kekko - "Past Lives"

Photo by Jared Rezel

Singaporean duo Kekko have taken three distinct but closely related genres and mixed them into a gorgeous sound. Their latest single "Past Lives" is a thrilling blend of shoegaze, dream pop, and psychedelia. It may lean a little more into the pop side of those three sounds, but it's such a unique blend of pop even the snobbiest of us won't mind at all. It's the swirling haze of shoegaze, the uplifting lilt of dream pop and the trippy beauty of psychedelia. It lazily drifts through these genres seemingly at random, ebbing and flowing throughout the song.

Cherie Kekko says the song “... conveys the cosmic connection that Tim and I share, about how a force like Love can transcend time and space, and even span across lifetimes.”

You can listen to "Past Lives" below. Dreaming Life is due out June 11 on Spirit Goth Records. For more on Kekko, check out the artist's Twitter and Bandcamp.
