Another Green World

In Dreams

I just went to the Memphis Bandcamp page looking for some 80s inspired music. I wanted hard hitting drum machines, glittery synths and highly reverberated vocals. It took me a while longer than normal to find something to write about since I had such a specific target, but Another Green World’s album In Dreams totally delivered. Alec West is the man behind this project. He’s been making music of this style since 2007, with In Dreams being released on May 21 of this year. He lists his influences as new wave, synth pop, shoegaze and 80s film soundtracks. It’s all very apparent and very well done.
