Sonic daydreamers SOUVENIR DRIVER from Portland, Oregon just released their fourth
LP titled ‘A DANGEROUS CROSSING’. A deeply emotive record influenced by a Friedrich Nietzsche quote ‘Mankind is a dangerous crossing’, current events, and personal lives.
Overall it’s an intensely touching, captivating and soul-stirring piece of work. High-class songwriting from the pensive lifelike reveries ‘Glow (The Empress)’ and ‘Outer Space‘ to the spicier full-sound humdingers ‘Haze‘, ‘Spin’ and ‘Lonesome Prairie‘, the cutting guitar fueled ‘Who Are You‘ and the splendid synths and bass injected swagger of ‘Admire’.
When the more than 8-minute groovy closer Glass Slipper (The Queen) comes to an end you’ll push the repeat button without any hesitation as, just like me, you’ll be tempted to discover every layer, every twist, every hook, every lick, every moment and every line of these terrifically arranged en delightfully orchestrated songs. This band knows exactly what imposing tunes need, how to construct them and how to turn them into appealing aural pearls that impact your hungry ears. ‘A DANGEROUS CROSSING‘ is an arresting achievement!
