July 3, 2016 — “Million Dreams” by Annie Hall

“Million Dreams” by Annie Hall

If you only listen to one song tonight, make it “Million Dreams” by Annie Hall (2015, from the “Million Dreams” single).

Annie Hall is a shoegaze band from Yogyakarta, Indonesia. I know absolutely nothing about this band, and as you might guess, internet searches don’t return anything about this band. No Facebook profile that I could find. No Bandcamp. No lastfm. Only this one song on SoundCloud. But oh my goodness, is this terrific.

Partly because of the very quiet/very loud juxtaposition, I’m reminded a bit of the wonderful but short-lived DC dream pop/shoegaze band Ultracherry Violet. There’s loads of fuzz and distortion. It slowly builds a massive wall, then there’s an absolute tsunami of sound at 2:16. For the next five minutes, we’re riding that dangerous wave, except for a little break from 4:55 to 5:21.

This is that song. Hold on tight.

I know literally nothing about this band. I just heard this song in my SoundCloud feed and knew that I had to post it. Hopefully there’s more stuff already out there or more to come from this band.
