Continuing on with the theme of long-distances, traveling, and relationships, "Souvenir" weaves a tale of chasing after love and how so often the end result is nothing but a souvenir (as told through a Death Cab inspired tenor). Throw in some superb production complete with dashes of effected harp and carried by enough layers of synth and drums to keep you stumbling upon new elements with every listen, and you've got a recipe for a perfect road trip or interpersonal headphone jam session.
Listening to this, I just can't help but be reminded of 2003, when I spent the lazy days of summer going between Death Cab for Cutie's Transatlanticism and Postal Service's Give Up anytime I was in the car or my headphones were on.
This is definitely some electro-pop with a soul, and the vibe carries throughout Miles as Canopy Climbers put their own spin on the indie pop genre as they blend elements of electronic, pop, and indie rock. If you dig "Souvenir" you can download the entire record right here as you make your way through wherever this summer might take you. It might just make your perfect summer soundtrack.
