London’s You’ll Never Get to Heaven have been making impressive and immaculately produced dream/ambient pop for almost as long as we’ve a blog. Now, with Images, they establish themselves as perfecters of the genre, and reestablish themselves as one of our favourite bands in the country.
Alice Hansen and Chuck Blazevic (who occasionally writes for this blog) take their production to new heights throughout the 11 track run-time. Sure, you have heard a lot of these sounds before, but the way they are used makes for a product that sounds entirely unique and new. They also take the project in (dare we say) a poppier direction than their previous outputs. Album opener “Shared Dreams,” title track “Images” and “Wind” are the clear favourites here for us, but each track has a distinct soft flavour that lends itself to multiple listens.
