Pure Bathing Culture: Dream the Dare

From The Flaming Lips' "Turning Violent" to Jesse Woods' "Lazerburn," our look at music this week

What do you get when you cross Beach House with Fleetwood Mac somewhere on the foggy coast of the Pacific Northwest? Portland’s Pure Bathing Culture melds celestial layered synths with late ’70s, dreamy pop rock. Their second single, “Dare to Dream,” from their upcoming full-length debut illustrates the duo’s musical potential. Backed by producer Richard Swift of The Shins, Pure Bathing Culture has already created a buzz online with their hypnotic choruses and mix of shimmering guitar and synth. Keep an eye out for their release Moon Tides, set for 20 August 2013.
