Sergey Lenkov Impressive relaxing music (dream ambient pop) in style which could remind you of Violet Indiana and of course music is written in best traditions of Lovespirals!

The first new single from Lovespirals since their 2010 album, 'Future Past,' is in many regards a return to form for band founder, Ryan Lum. Lum exploded onto the American dream pop scene back in 1991 as Love Spirals Downwards on the Projekt Records label, quickly establishing himself as one of the best ethereal producers and guitarists this side of the Atlantic. "Brother Against Brother" is swirling, ambient, folk-tinged, dream pop replete with heavily effected guitar and heavenly female vocals, in the vein of his seminal work, 'Ardor.' Falling on the heels of the Anji Bee branded album, 'Love Me Leave Me' -- which was truly the 5th album created by Lovespirals duo, Anji Bee and Ryan Lum -- this single comes as a bit of a surprise. But then again, moving between electronica and dream pop is something that both Lum and Bee have long enjoyed. Not only does the switch in styles allow Lum musical freedom, but it also offers Bee the chance to explore a myriad of emotions and vocal nuances. Her work here is understated and serene, with uncharacteristically sociopolitical lyrics. The B-side is an updated version of the gorgeously ambient instrumental, "Breath Of Life," originally created for a short film of the same name in 2011. Here, Bee's wordless vocals intertwine with Lum's dreamy, Western-tinged dream pop guitar, to weave a heavenly tapestry of sound with a mystical feel.


Lovespirals are currently completing work on their 5th album, 'Life Goes On.' If you would like to help fund this endeavor, please consider contributing something extra to your purchase of this single. Thank you for your support!

Track Name: Brother Against Brother
Its brother against brother
Woman against man
Struggling for power
Why can't they understand?

Though they might have dominance
Destruction is not prominence
We don't float or sink alone
We all share the same home
