Varela’s strength has always been in her melodies – mysterious and magical layers of dreamy lines – in true shoegaze fashion barely distinguishable but atmospheric and evocative. The accompanying video is appropriately filled with vintage psychedelic images that match the dream pop reverie:

If this is the calibre of RVP, then we are in for some exciting new music. You can get the single through the link below:
