8/10 Mike Staff review, 24 January 2014

This latest Gap Dream LP on Burger Records comes in lavish but difficult-to-access packaging, with a beautiful shiny sleeve along with an obi-strip type thing that wraps around it so you can't easily get to the record. Once you do, though, you'll find some great summery slacker rock with casual neon melodies and uplifting vocal harmonies, kind of like a much more synth-heavy take on the feel-good slacker AOR of bands like Real Estate or Free Time, but with shades of the sun-bleached dreaminess that unites people like Washed Out and Tame Impala.

On the sadly cursory first listen I'm reviewing this album from, an immediate highlight is 'Love Is Not Allowed', which sees them slow things right down until it's almost like the Pet Shop Boys covering East 17's 'Stay Another Day', but the vocal delivery is great, kind of monotonous and stoical and electronically processed two-part harmonies but lyrically quite emotional, which gives it that strange dreamy nursery rhyme feel. Simple but oh so effective. I like this, it's warm and laid back and there's a good balance between the synths and the guitars which make it very hard to classify as either synthpop or indie rock.
