The Polar Dream是一支来自墨西哥的后摇乐队。
It has elements of many other similar bands; a melodica like in the music of múm makes cameos throughout the album, most notably on ‘La Aldea’, the crashing yet somehow relaxing drums are not dissimilar to the ambience of The Album Leaf and the yearning echoes of the guitars would do This Will Destroy You proud. ‘Leaves In The Sky’ is like an instrumental Sigur Rós track, in fact Jonsi’s vocals hooting Hopelandic over the song was half expected on listening.
The Polar Dream prove there need not be any shame in coming out of the closet as a post-rock band, because if ‘Follow Me To The Forest’ is the result, then it’s something that should never be hidden. Just as long as we on the underground get to keep it all to ourselves.
