Let Pullover’s new record, Forever, out February 7 via Self Aware Records, take you on a dreamy journey.
“Forever is an album about trying your best to sit back and appreciate the good things you have going for you,” the band says. “In the past couple years of my life, I’ve given up drinking, smoking cigarettes, and have settled down in many ways. These songs reflect a want to stay alive, to not die young, and they’re about being able to enjoy my own company for the first time.”
Charlotte, North Carolina dream pop quintet Pullover began in 2013 as a freewheeling side project between longtime friends Phil Pucci and Alex Smith. Originally performing under the name Melt, the band changed their name and amended their lineup recently to include Caiti Mason, Nicholas Holman, and Brooke Weeks.
With Forever, the group sought to create an album that is more deliberate and infectious than its garage-rock predecessor, Repossession Blues. The guitar-and-synth-drenched album is underscored by hazy pop melodies. Sparkling, psychedelic effects layer on top of one another to create a smoky atmosphere underneath singer and guitarist Phil Pucci’s urgent vocals.
