The fine folks at the Géographie label tipped me onto an upcoming project of theirs from France, dream pop band Good Morning TV. Their new album Small Talk is coming June 18, but have had this first single “Insomniac” out for a minute now. I’ve been delving into buzzier, more “current” indie pop as it comes to me via my Spotify Recommends section, and this song definitely falls in that vein: drifting, layered guitars, plinking synthesizer, skittering, snare-heavy percussion and lovely uncanny vocals from singer Bérénice Deloire. Think Men I Trust or Barrie.
The song eventually opens up with a deep, pulsating synth line, offering a great dynamic contrast to the rather dosed opening half of the song. It’s a lovely slice of dream pop that I can imagine most of my readers would be down for.
Good Morning TV’s Small Talk is out June 18 via Géographie – pre-order HERE.
