Moving Panoramas bring dreamy indie pop to Cheer Up Charlie's 10/15

Austin-based all girl power trio, Moving Panoramas, craft gorgeous indie pop dreamscapes set against simple, but alluring vocal melodies. On their single "One," the band creates a strong assertion against Three Dog Night's famous tune, in a way that seems both strong and sincere. In fact, the band's sound is one of strength and sincerity--a group both sure of who they are, and have masterfully honed their sound. Take a listen to "One" streaming below, and be sure to catch the Moving Panormas at Cheer Up Charlie's 10/15 with Dead Leaf Echo, Pale Dian, The Veldt, All in the Golden Afternoon, and Twin Studies. - Olivia Sisinni

   

Dream-pop trio Pale Dīan celebrates release of 'Narrow Birth' at Swan Dive on 06.03

Austin-based dream-pop trio Pale Dian, set to release their debut album Narrow Birth on June 3rd via Manifesto Records, offers whirling melodies and glowing textures reminiscent of unforgettable dream-pop acts such as Cocteau Twins and Lush, although they often enjoy adding a peculiar touch of dissonance to their tunes. Earlier this year, the trio released “In A Day” (streaming below), the first single off their upcoming album, characterized by a uber-celestial melody and big choruses featuring wall of guitars borrowed from shoegazer. Their latest single “Pas De Deux” (also streaming) strips down their sound leaving behind the fuzz of their previous single, and creating an equally mesmerizing atmosphere that allows lead singer Ruth Ellen Smith’s echoey vocals to exert their haunting magnetism. After playing a record release show for Narrow Birth at Swan Dive on June 3rd, the band will be on tour through the end of July with Ringo Deathstar and Stargazer Lillies on select dates. - John Honan
