Bodywash are a Montreal-based band lead by Rosie Long Decter and Chris Steward. Their music is inspired by acts like Beach House, Deerhunter, MBV and Slowdive. They signed to Luminelle Recordings and announced the release of the first full-length, out on August 30th. We already shared “Eye To Eye”; “Reverie” is a new excerpt. The band had this statement about the track:

“Reverie is a fever dream – literally. Chris first started writing the song while delirious and weak from a high fever, couped up in a small, dark-walled rehearsal space. That sense of confinement made its way into the song, a mounting tension that gives way to a manic need for release. Reverie wasn’t meant to progress in a linear fashion, though it’s anchored by a steady motorik beat. We expected there to be a chorus or refrain, but as it turned out, the song needed to just build to that breaking point – a kind of ‘micro chorus’ – in order to open itself up again. The track gestures towards a hope for something new, even if that something is just a fantasy. Its frantic escapist bent erodes distinctions between real and surreal, subject and object. All that prevails is a desire to float to the surface – whatever that surface may be.”
