“Meet And Greet”, off Slaraffenland‘s upcoming debut LP We’re On Your Side, follows precisely the direction in which they embarked on last year’s EP Sunshine with tracks like “I’m A Machine” and “The Trick”. Slaraffenland continues to shovel out intricately orchestrated experimental pop melodies. “Meet And Greet” proves this band’s signature is quickly becoming hand claps and stomps featured at unique intervals and horn heavy instrumentation, fronted by ornate multi-part vocals that converge and spread into complex harmonies instantaneously.
We’re On Your Side is poised to become one of this year’s must-have pop albums, and Slaraffenland is quickly becoming one of the most promising acts around, often touring with similar acts such as Efterklang (alongside whom they perform with as the epic master-group Slaraffenklang). They’ll hit the road later this fall with Akron/Family, after that band visits the west (a note on that tour is coming Monday).
We’re On Your Side comes out this September on Hometapes.
