Haycorn - In The Creek

Released: 14 March 2020
Label: _
Listen and Buy Here

Haycorn are a duo from Montreal. They are relatively new and this song is so magical and ethereal, it is well worth a listen.

Behind the beautiful melodies and dreamy synths, the song has darker themes of mental health. It is based on the character Ophelia from the Shakespeare play - Hamlet.

The song has quite a hypnotic feel to it and is totally captivating. Their sound is largely dream pop but I can hear hints of Mazzy Star and Portishead as well. The vocals of Melissa Charbonneau Bisier are powerful yet quite fragile at the same time. The desperation is expressed so well and it is a very moving listen.

Their song 'Sing Me To Sleep' is also well worth investigating. A perfect combination of indie pop and more ambient music. Highly recommended.
