#8: DEAR TRACKS – “Soft Dreams [EP]”

After a move from Florida to Grand Rapids, Michigan, Matt Messore’s perspective and sound have changed.

Messore is best known for his former band, You Blew It!, that delivered on catchy emo and pop-punk songs. Dear Tracks is a departure from that sound and channels a much more ethereal energy. The four song EP is a small step into Messore’s underwater daydream, complete with heavenly synth layers and plenty of reverb all across the soundboard.

Start with: “Moment of Clarity” and “Soft Dreams.”
