Georgia-based up and coming artist Phony Bedtime released their phantasmically mesmerising latest single “Invitation” on August 14th, and it’s exactly the kind of hazy ethereal dreamscape which you’d expect to hear in a David Lynch feature.
The layers of transient synth-led Dream wave accordance wouldn’t allow you to believe that Invitation was a DIY production. There’s a distinctive polished and cinematic sound behind Phony Bedtime’s haunting approach to Indie Pop which any fans of Big Thief, Slowdive, and Angel Olsen are going to want to check out.
Invitation is just one of the singles which you will find on the artist’s latest album “Possum Songs” which is available to listen to on SoundCloud. Each of the melodiously sweet orchestrations will give you another reason to fall slightly enamoured by Phony Bedtime and their lucid brand of aural alchemy, but Invitation still remains the most potent mix of reverb-laden catharsis.
