While dream pop can get a bad rap for being a little too twee at times, this track by Tourist (feat. Swim Mountain + Esther Joy) is a gentle, twinkling example of the genre at its best. The song’s name, “Sleepwalking,” is a perfect explanation for its in-between, limbo-like vibe—half awake, half asleep; melancholy but hopeful. Tourist (aka British producer/songwriter William Phillips) just released his Wash EP on which this tune appears.
