Mixing jangly guitars, dreamy synths and drowned out vocals, Dear Tracks are the Grand Rapids, MI dream-pop band of Matt Messore, and Victoria Ovenden. In the vein of dream-pop favorites such as Beach Fossils, Diiv, and Real Estate, Dear Tracks blend sunny and upbeat instrumentals with catchy melodies and washed out reverb. ‘Aligning With The Sun’ follows their ‘Soft Dreams’ EP released earlier this year on Track & Field and Furious Hooves Records. The single reflects the shimmery and synth-based direction the band is going on their forthcoming debut album and builds on the groundwork laid out by their past releases.
