Genre/Influences: Dream-Pop.

Format: Digital, Vinyl.

Background/Info: Chivvy is a Swedish formation, which was previously active under the name, The Tape. This  year they released their self-titled debut album featuring ten songs.

Content: “Chivvy” is a dreamy production, which clearly reminds me of Dream-Pop. It has been accentuated by the fragile and passionate female vocals.
The songs have been progressively built up.

+ + + : The production of the vocals is an essential aspect of the production. The fragile timbre of voice merged with pure passion perfectly fits the Dream-Pop approach of this band. Sound-wise the guitar playing injects a true melancholic taste. Songs like “Melatonin” and “Red Water” both are noticeable cuts, but I especially recommend “Coexist” for its elevating effect.

– – – : This is an honest debut, but is missing a true apotheosis.

Conclusion: “Chivvy” is an invitation to dream away throughout melancholic corridors of sound.

Best songs: “Coexist”, “Red Water”, “Melatonin”.

Rate: 6½.
