The experience of listening to Inner Classics, the second release from Cali-Canadian twosome Snowblink, is quite easy to replicate. Imagine it’s Sunday morning and you’ve just woken up in a massive, ridiculously comfortable bed, with plump marshmallow pillows and clean linen sheets. There may or may not be someone completely beautiful sleeping next to you (it’s your brain, you’ll have to fill some details in yourself), but there’s certainly sunshine streaming through the curtains.
Snowblink‘s latest album, Inner Classics, is a refined continuation of their polished folk-pop. Their music is reliant on atmospheric harmony surrounded by slow-building soundscapes that grow steadily within each song. Daniela Gesundheit’s voice is the leading force behind the band; she sings just as often (and as convincingly) in double-tracked vocals as she does in duet with Dan Goldman, the other half of Snowblink.
