Delicate, polite and unabashed
Porcelain Raft - Strange Weekend

Twinkling in blue skies, mingling in surf's seafoam, lapping beach hiss. Idealised situations, backing tracks to life's TV show: soaring hearts, crashing melancholy, high drama crescendos. These songs are just waiting for you to give context to them: road trips, late night gallivanting, drunken memories, first love, heartbreak. From minimal composition to maximal, shades of the day and the human condition. Imagine Tyrannosaurus Rex era Marc Bolan fronting a chillwave band: delicate, polite and unabashed. Most certainly a bedroom record affair and perhaps suffering for this fact but the overall sentiment captured make up for whatever shortcomings may be presented.
