sleep party people - we were drifting on a sad song

sleep party people is the brainchild of copenhagen resident brian batz. after his 2010 debut album, "we were drifting on a sad song" is the sophomore album and honestly, it does sound way more adult than you'd ever expect from a second output. i am not sure if this could be labelled as dream-pop, even though the album has all ingredients that are needed to make a dream pop album, but.... it has much more. there's also a bit of that gaga'ish flaming lips style plus a huge package of playfulness, lush laid-back melodies and a slight subliminal weirdness that's present on the whole album. some might think the album is a way too cimplicated, but when you just let it grow on you, you'll fall in love with it. songs like "chin", the title track "we were drifting on a sad song" and "gazing at the moon" are the highlights on the album. and don't you forget about the amazing silent "heaven is above us" and the great "melancholic fog".
