Swiss Alps - Riptide Lore

I love the deft blending of tape warble and shoegaze vocal - absolutely sweet as honey.


Nothing is known about these Pennsylvania guitar pop merchants, aside from the fact that ‘Riptide Lore’ was put up on bandcamp as a means of “snagging” the band name (and it’s a sweet band name, I agree). The song itself is the vital ingredient for a perfect day; gorgeous guitar lines shift in and out of tune mercilessly, as hushed vocals swelter in the background. Now excuse me as I take to the slopes with this playing in my ears (note: I’ve never been skiing. I would probably prefer skydiving).
