Night Hikes is the Seattle-based duo of Olivia Godby and Matthew Farrell who’s preference for lush and fuzz-flavoured dream-pop is utterly beguiling.
The latest fruit from this dynamic partnership comes in the shape of brand new single ‘Belltown’. Sparse to begin with, it is a gentle and dreamy affair built around Godby’s lush vocals that float over a woozy wash of shimmering synth, glimmering guitar, seductive undulating groove and purrs with a rich melodic allure. It is a magical, timeless and stirring as the veil of melancholy and swell of emotion really pulls heavy on the heartstrings. A hazy, late-night lullaby that will transfix your mind and melt your heart.
