about

With fuzzed guitars and airy vocals, Vancouver-via-Brazil shoegaze duo Palm Haze just shared a captivating new single, “Floating” with Clash, from their newly announced album Rêve Bleu out August 30 on YHS Records.

The track follows previous single “Almost Soon” premiered with PopMatters. As Pitchfork pointed out, the band is "capable of just as furious a swirl" as My Bloody Valentine and Ride, blending alt rock, shoegaze and trip-hop influences to create a sound that's somehow heavy, dark and tranquil all at once. Vocalist/bassist Anna Wagner and guitarist/producer Lucas Inacio (aka Fløver) previously released their Tangy Dream EP in 2017 (DKFM's 3rd best shoegaze album that year). It was later released on cassette by YHS Records and on vinyl via a successful crowdfunding campaign on Qrates.

A song about infatuation, Anna's heavenly vocal masks the darkness of the lyric, while the grinding guitar noise conjure beauty from the ugliest location.

The singer comments: "'Floating' is a song about infatuation. It’s about mixed feelings and the idea of being in love. Like a brief teenage summer affair, the kind that fills you up with dopamine, as if you're floating in air, but leads to irrationality, confusion and doubt... until you get over it".
