"Blue Eyes of a Broken Doll" by Golden Gardens // Narcissus (Out Now via Bandcamp)
The new EP from Seattle based dream pop duo Golden Gardens is a gorgeous four track collection. “Narcissus” includes shoegaze, dream pop, ambient, and even some old school trip hop flavors, and truth be told, there’s not a sour note in the bunch, but the EP closer is the song that has been on repeat for most of my evening. “Blue Eyes of a Broken Doll” is a dreamy lullaby that builds from a sweet piano loop to a beautiful, ethereal vocal with a hazy, floating hum of ambient textures. It’s a spectacular track for a late summer’s night. Stream and purchase the entire EP at Bandcamp. Highly recommended for fans of Memoryhouse, Blouse, and Seapony.
