Following the release of their initial collaboration, “A Secret Garden”, Caramel Ship teams up again to expand on their brand of whimsical alt-pop stylings with their latest release, “Playscape+”. Taking inspiration from a bevy of musical influences and childhood fantasies, the crew started crafting new tunes with topics stretching from retreats into nature, jaunts with a short-wave princess through a scrapyard carnival, celebrations of Spring, to dream-like larks. All with their usual flair for playfulness & surrealism.
Each track is wrapped in looping grooves, punchy break beats, & infectious melodies. Spanning 16 tracks in total, “Playscape+” could be the soundtrack to a children's program, a trippy video game, or simply a collection of jams to break up the day to day routine. At the very least, it's an invitation to a free-form happening for any and all that are open to its down to Earth yet spacey charms.
