Swedish outfit Eldoradio first introduced themselves with debut single Black & Blue in 2015, and quickly followed by debut LP 21st Century Explosive Sound in 2016.
The band returned toward the end of last year with a more stripped-back, melancholic and touching take on their indie-tones single in the shape of ‘Pipe Dreams’. It is a dusky, soft centered, swooning song that greets us with a rather gentle acoustic strum and slide, embraced in turn by a warm organ hum, which swells to swallow all in its wake. Add to that a melodic and melancholic twist, and a distinctive deep drawl filled with feeling and emotion, really bring home the poetic lyrics. An intimate, intricate and captivating song from start to finish – it is hard to not be moved by this little gem.
Hopefully there is similarly superb stuff from Eldoradio throughout 2018 but for now, you can listen to ‘Pipe Dreams’ below:
