Remember that dream-pop group out of the Midwest I posted about back in January that Marc called “headphone magic?” Well, Bora York has now released a full album and it’s filled with tracks that carry the same enchanting, ambient sounds that will make fans of MGMT and Trails and Ways all kinds of happy. What you may not know is that the project originally started out as a folk album for a school project. While wife Rebekah has been playing music all her life, Chris began the project as a folk album for a school project. When the songs weren’t working (an in loom of a deadline), he let go of the music he was holding so tightly onto and the way he explains it, “it’s like the album was given new life. Everything became exciting again.” Creative freedom plus friends Charlie Wirth, Brian Seidel, Bjorn Nilsen, and Jamie Kauppi created synth-driven dream-pop. The band hopes to go on tour this summer/fall to support the album so if you’d like to see them, click here to be notified when a show is scheduled.
