As You'll Never Get To Heaven, Alice Hansen and Chuck Blazevic shine through the crowded field of dream-pop bands with their enthralling compositions, which are carefully textured and supremely soothing. Today, the Canadian duo are premiering their new song "Images" with The FADER, taken from their upcoming third album of the same name. Amongst gently propulsive drums, the song casts a vapor promising both intrigue and glamor, like a Bond movie theme dosed on opiates.
The band parsed through the influences of "Images" in an email to The FADER. "'Images' came out of a fascination with 80s Japanese pop and minimalism, yet still remains indebted to the dreamy impressionism of Debussy (as with our past work). The mallet instruments in the song figure prominently across the rest of the album, as is the use of manipulated harp and string sounds. The song contracts soft/harsh textures, mirroring lyrical themes of dreams/reality, internal/external worlds, spirit/ego, and continues our exploration of haunting beauty in music."
Images, the third album from You'll Never Get To Heaven, is out March 24. Preorder it here.
