That pretty cool cover artwork is a clue to the rather nifty indie-pop going on inside Impossible Dream by Haley Bonar. It’s hook-full pop with scratching guitar and deep, sexy vocals. There’s soaring synths and Spector-ish reverb and it’s overall just good fun and an album to mess about to with ya mates.
Available on CD or as a vinyl LP.
Alt-country-ish chanteuse Haley Bonar is back with a sixth album of wistful and widescreen singer-songwriter business, ably assisted by a backing band including folks who play with Bon Iver, Tapes 'n Tapes, Alpha Consumer and Andrew Bird. Expect breathy-voiced prettiness with slick Americana arrangements.
