Black Light White Light - new single 'Teenage Dream'
This weeks main focus is to write album reviews, but we'll keep dropping in some new tracks, and the new single 'Teenage Dream' from 'Black Light White Light' is definitely worth highlighting, and it's yet another great psychedelic influenced track coming out of Denmark (with some help from Sweden) too.
So 'Black Light White Light' was originally the sole creation of musician Martin Ejlertsen, formed in Copenhagen back in 2009, and with the support of fellow musicians they have released 2 albums 'Infrared Daylight' and 'Gold into Dreams' in 2011 and 2014 respectively. Since 2015 they've been working on the follow up, which is entitled 'Horizons', and it's due for release on the 23rd March through Forward Backward Recordings.
'Teenage Dream' is simple a belting track, led by a bold melodic keyboard driven theme, supported by fuzzy guitars, and the whole track is dripping with swirling psychedelia, but through it all Martin Ejlertsen's vocals offer a soft melancholy quality that makes it really listenable. There are so many great influences from music across the last 50 years, but it still works perfectly today.
