Vanishing Lands


Artist: Dog in the Snow
Label: Bella Union
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 15 November 2019

Bella Union release Dog in the Snow's new LP, Vanishing Lands, an imposing, haunting and luminous collection of songs in the darker spaces between dream pop, art rock and electronica...

Vanishing Lands is mainly a dream pop album which harkens back to the '80s music scene. There's a little flavour of Kate Bush woven throughout these 10 songs (33 min, 16 sec); a dreamy, pop sensibility that is engaging, timeless, but I couldn't help feeling I'd heard it all before.

While Dog in the Snow craft intricate, melodic songs there's not a great deal here to get excited about. And, once you've heard it there's not a great deal that sticks with you. A disposable album that is a nice diversion, but don't expect to be digging this out in months or years to come.
