Norwegian pop outfit Young Dreams channel all the buoyant oddities of ‘ONE’-era Yeasayer, with the added bonus that the spirit of The Beach Boys has hijacked their vocals. The likes of ‘Wounded Hearts Forever’ or ‘When Kisses Are Salty’ seesaw around wonky song structures, but retain such a pure pop heart you barely notice the strange time signatures and instruments around them. ‘Dream Alone, Wake Together’ manages to sound like Arcade Fire soundtracking an ’80s cop show, while the harmonies that open ‘Through The Turnstiles’ are spine-tinglingly similar to some of Brian Wilson’s work. It’s truly dreamy.
