Gap Dream Bridge Beatles to Disco on Swirling ‘Shine Your Love’

Gap Dream, shine your love, shine your light

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.
