When did I lose your eye, VIDEO/SINGLE: ANNA BURCH – Party’s Over [Sam Evian, producer]

Anna Burch – If You’re Dreaming is available at Bandcamp.

by Walter Price

As Spring moves along and thoughts of new ways to summer add to the current monotonies, one thing remains the same, the need to soundtrack our lives. And if you dig your sounds at the crossroads of post-punk jangle and late 60s french pop, then the latest LP, ‘If You’re Dreaming’, from multifaceted Detroit artist Anna Burch is going to fill your wispy-groove-heavy warm-weathered playlists nicely.

Intimately poetic lyrics that run deep without weighing the sentiments nor listener down. This could also be said about the Sam Evian production, Intricate yet light and airy. Culminating in so many great melodies throughout the 12 tracks that any one of them (if not most) will cause much-needed singalongs.

To get a feel for this album’s vibe, check out “Party’s Over”. This wistful beauty appears to be born from weariness and faded dreams. That may sound daunting, but here, it’s catchy, spacious, and easy on the soul. As the metaphor laced video, directed by Burch, is a blended homage to those campy late 60s/early 70s psych and sci-fi films with added twists to the runaway bride trope. Clever, eclectic, something lurking under the surface and the interesting choice of getaway car will pique and maintain your interest.

And don’t forget to add this one to that playlist…

When the party is compulsory
I start getting down
Watch you make the rounds
When did I lose your eye?
Feels like I lost my mind

‘Cause I’m so tired
I’m so tired
I’m so tired
I’m so tired
