Gal Gracen :: Fantasy Gardens

Vancouver’s Gal Gracen latest release, FANTASY GARDENS, is a work brimming with empyreal bedroom pop and kaleidoscopic fantasia. Recorded in Vancouver, Ho Chi Minh City and on Malaysia’s Mount Kinabalu, this record would have fit in neatly with Underwater Peoples’ mean streak of lo-fi releases in the late ’00s. Self-described as a collection of “elysian pop ballads dressed in a new age aesthetic,” there’s a wholly imaginative sonic world to get lost in here — one equal parts exotica and art rock.
