Wesley Bunch may come from Norfolk, Virginia, but the dream pop he’s written with the help of Elliott Malvas and Jon Reynolds sounds distinctly Scandinavian. The friends’ casual jamming has produced some very easy pop tunes that have a pretty, delicate softness to their ’80s new wave influence. They recorded mini-EP Favorite Friend with Brad Rosenberg a while ago now but the songs still stand up as strong and enchanting. Named ‘Summer Breeze’ and ‘Attractive Smile’, the charmingly simple tunes definitely show a fairly positive outlook and the many layers keep it interesting.
Favorite Friend is available for pay-as-you-like via bandcamp. Below, check out ‘Attractive Smile’ and new track ‘Give Up’, which was released a couple of weeks ago and comes from Suburban Living’s second EP, which is due out next year.
