Candy Claws

In the Dream of the Sea Life
Self-released

Written as a musical companion to Rachel Carson's 1951 classic on marine biology, The Sea Around Us, this latest full-length from Fort Collins's Candy Claws bears immediate sonic comparisons to the Animal Collective opus Merriweather Postpavillion. The dreamy, breathy soundscaping across the entire album captures images of sun-dappled afternoons on the ocean with little but a gentle breeze to ripple the water. Clearly the songwriters have spent a great deal of time in the South Pacific or imagining what it might be like to spend time exploring the sheer beauty of coral reefs in that part of the world. Amid shimmering synth swells, impressionistic and ethereal guitar, gently textured percussion and gossamer vocal delivery is a sense of irrepressible wonder that blends together but never becomes boring.
