Sweden's Postiljonen share their glowing new single, taken from the group's forthcoming LP Reverie, out February 19, 2016. With the stellar recent singles they've unveiled from the new record, these guys are really staking their claim as the greatest remaining Swedish Balearic dream-pop group — RIP Air France and Korallreven — and the gorgeous, windswept "The Open Road" might be their most heartfelt and goosebump-inducing song yet (that "this could be easy / it's all in the past" bit literally gets me every time). Check the video, featuring footage the group shot on their recent tour of Asia, below, and grab the track now on iTunes:
London dream-pop duo Still Corners unveil their twinkling new single: we've always felt these two would make the ideal house band for an '80s prom (hugest compliment, in my opinion) and the romantically swaying "Horses at Night" elicits the kind of bittersweet yearning that would make it a perfect, vaguely cinematic anthem for a final slow-dance. Edit: Probably not taken from the group's almost-finished third full-length, which is definitely due sometime in 2016. Visuals by Lucy Dyson:
Here's the gorgeous/auspicious debut from Corinth, Greece duo Ocean Hope, who you may already be familiar with from their appearance on the dreamy new single from fellow Grecian duo Keep Shelly in Athens...
Yumi Zouma is set to drop a limited new 12" that collects all the New Zealand group's hits — including both of their stellar, now-sold-out EPs, along with that beautiful Air France collab/cover, and the previously unreleased "Right, Off the Bridge" — on one very fancy deluxe vinyl package (pictured above). The first 500 records come on translucent vinyl with "blue haze" and a colored silkscreen wrap; listen to the silky new jam below and pre-order the 12" here. Full tracklist after the jump. Catch the Yumis live (along with Korallreven, Chad Valley, Lemonade, Cuushe, and more) at Cascine's 5YR Anniversary party on September 17 at Brooklyn's Wythe Hotel.
Yumi Zouma's EP Collection 12" is out September 18.
