Who is BatWhaleDragon? This info page has left me none the wiser – they come from Bruges in Belgium and that was about all I could uncover. Their new single ‘The Sweet Smell of Bridges Burnt’ is an electronic instrumental made of gorgeous twinkling synths that will make you feel like you’re floating through the clouds (on the back of a batwhaledragon). It comes off their latest album, Zoa Constrictor, which is inspired by vaporwave and William Blake.
Brandon Hoogenboom is a singer songwriter from LA. He also designs underwear (I love it when press releases throw in completely random information). This latest single is a jangly indie track with Beatles-esque undertones and a hint of Father John Misty in the vocals – I’m definitely feelin’ the summery vibe (even if it is currently winter). The warped pitch-shifted opening is kind of scary but it’s creative and certainly drew me in.
