Georgia Ochoa aka Seagoth arose on the scene with her debut EP ‘House Party For Ghosts’ which she recorded and produced herself. Now she returns with latest single ‘Dreamworld’.
The latest release is a psychedelic, immersive experience with birdsong intertwined with deep synths and a lot of reverb.
Unlike previous releases ‘Dreamworld’ has a more overwhelming sound. The usual spirited dream-pop remains but certianly takes a backseat.
Speaking on the track Georgia explains that “The lyrics “wake me up, something keeps waking me up. But I keep coming back here in my dreams” refers to the repetitive e-piano melody that’s mimicking an alarm sound. Those few moments before you fully wake and your alarm is blending into your dream momentarily causing this “dreamworld” to spill into reality for a second. That strange and unreal feeling is what I attempted to replicate in this track with the lyrics and the instrumentation”.
The track takes influence from MGMT’s ‘Little Dark Age’ and Beach House’s album ‘7’. Seagoth uses tape delay and tracing synths to lure you in to her hypnotic world of psychedelia. It’s wonderfully mesmerising.
