4 stars Listening diary 30th September, 2021: North Atlantic Oscillation - The Third Day (progressive/dream pop, 2014)

There are plenty of bands around carrying the spirit of the techy, mathier side of Mew, notably in the progressive metal scene, so it's nice to come across a band who carries the spirit of their dream pop side. North Atlantic Oscillation, despite label connections with progressive rock, are far more of a dream pop act than anything else, but it is that very subtle prog influence that sets them apart. The body of this album contains shimmering melodies and vacuum noise to rival many MBV clones, but beneath the surface they have a kind of intricacy rarely seen in dream pop and shoegaze, with odd time signatures, strange structures and an arthouse sensibility creeping in on a few tracks.

7.7 (6th listen)
