She Daydreams with Old Lacy Bed - An Interview

Old Lacy Bed é um quarteto formado por quatro mocinhas japonesas que soltou em Abril seu mais novo trabalho, o EP "She Daydreams".

Fofurices nipônicas em formato dreampop cintilante. Pense no Lush e acrescente o Abba nesta formula, e o resultado é o Old Lacy Bed.

Pop bubblegum pegajoso e sonhador. Apropriadíssimo para ouvir alto em dias ensolarados.
