Gap Dream recently cited synth mastermind Giorgio Moroder as an influence on his upcoming Shine Your Light LP. But Gabe Fulvimar’s latest track sounds like it time-traveled from late-’60s Abbey Road Studios instead of an early-’80s discotheque. Sure, “Shine Your Love” still buzzes with lava lamp glow, but the bummed-out tune also rides a keyboard progression that’s disguised as a horn section, recalling the psychedelic pageantry of the Beatles. And, true, the Fab Four never wrote a rhyme as self-defeating as, “Going to do myself in with a bottle of gin tonight,” but lines about lidless eyes hiding behind cloudy skies would’ve fit just fine into the Lennon-McCartney songbook. Stream “Shine Your Love” below, and watch out for it on 7-inch vinyl — it’s due September 17 through Fat Possum. Shine Your Light, meanwhile, arrives November 12.
