Haley Bonar released Impossible Dream last month. It’s available on CD and limited edition teal vinyl from the Memphis Industries store as well as digitally via iTunes, and includes the BBC Radio 6 Music A-Listed singles “Kismet Kill” and “Stupid Face.“
The follow-up to her acclaimed Last War LP and was recorded on analogue tape in at Pachyderm Studios in Cannon Falls, MN and was mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TVOTR) & Robbie Lackritz (Feist) at Haut Bruun.
It’s certainly Bonar’s most ambitious record to date. Blending scuzzy 80s indie, new wave angularity and Spector-ish reverb, her songs are, as NPR once described, “as relentlessly catchy on the surface, as they are alluringly complex underneath.” Hypnotic opener “Hometown” shimmers like a Twin Peaks outtake, the shuddering, swirling “Kismet Kill” recalls Mazzy Star, while the soaring synth and pounding drums of “Stupid Face” summons the spirit and melody of Porcupine-era Echo and the Bunnymen. Intrepid and diverse, Impossible Dream is consistently bold, infectious and inventive.
“Impossible Dream finds the underrated Minnesotan in top form, mixing darkness and light with a deft touch” – NPR
“Haley Bonar’s Impossible Dream, the fine and discerningly lean album she has long threatened to make.” 4/5 Mojo
“This is a wonderful record – involving and irresistible” 4/5 Q
“I love this (“I Can Change”)” – Sir Elton John
