They didn't spiral the outer limits so much as explore the subtler aspects of inner headspace. That said, they held the listener's attention and caught her up in their drifts. On MoonlustAtlantic Postcard - The Holydrug Couple - Moonlust Chilean duo of Ives Sepulveda and Manuel Parra remain in the retrosphere but move in a different musical direction.
That doesn't mean there aren't psych touches here, but they're subservient to sounds from French film music and European cafe rock from the late s and '80s. In addition, the influence of French duo Air is utterly pervasive -- sans state of the art technology. Parra 's drums are merely a time-keeping instrument in these 12 tunes, but they keep the proceedings weighted to the earth. Really, this music is so "light" it's almost difficult to tell one track from another.
The songs, populated by vulnerable vocals, simple melodies, phase-shifted keyboards, primitive loops, and breezy guitars, are all of a textural piece that reportedly celebrates desire. As evidenced by first single "Dreamy," it's longing that speaks Atlantic Postcard - The Holydrug Couple - Moonlust to innocence than lust. The flowery basslines, shimmering cymbals, and recessed lead vocals swirl around deliriously, not only in this cut, but throughout the record.
The lithe, silvery, cosmopolitan "French Movie Theme" sounds like early Ride interpreting one of Serge Gainsbourg 's flashback sequences. A two-chord vamp with squalling guitars, heavy drums, and wafting keyboards creates a pulse and delivers some kinetic force.
The cut takes the listener forward into a maelstrom of stacked, contrasting textures and establishes some of the duo's intended erotic tension.
