Seoul Swoon and Croon on Lightheaded ‘I Become a Shade’ LP
Out June 9 on Grand Jury
Montreal-based indie-pop trio Seoul’s full-length debut, I Become a Shade, has been something of a slow boil. Singles on the record date as far back as 2013, and they’ve been playing live all the while, but their music inhabits a groggy, wispy headspace — a dreamland that you can imagine even its creators getting lost in. But at long last, it’ll be released on June 9, via Grand Jury. Evocative at times of the swooning emotions and side-chain compression exercises of similarly wilting electronic acts like Toro y Moi and Baths, it’s the perfect sort of half-baked summer synth-pop record. Listen to it in full below.
