Portland’s Sinless confront familiarity with enchanting indie-pop track “Strange Reality”

"[Strange Reality] is about that period after a breakup where you keep seeing each other but you're not together”, explains the frontman Cor Allen.

Opening the track with a UV-drenched melody, Sinless delve into light psychedelia, blanketing the track in nostalgia.

"Your former partner, though so familiar, seems so different. That situation feels surreal in a way and I wanted to make the track have a surreal sound but familiar melodic quality”, says Cor.

Whilst the track meanders innocently and lightly around the darker confusion of not knowing whether to follow your head or heart in the name of love, “Strange Reality” sees Sinless flourish melodically, venturing through sunshine-drenched harmonies; a soothing sound despite the subject they’re addressing.

Fusing their youthful synths with fluttering flutes depicts the butterfly feeling perfectly, and it seems Sinless are finding their feet in a temperamental tale.

"Strange Reality" is taken from Sinless' upcoming EP Melodie, which is out via Curly Cassettes.
