Dublin artist Feather Beds aka Michael Orange is planning to release his second album, Blooming, in the summer and has just unveiled the new single to be taken from it. ‘Headache Dreams’ is a real headphones song – there are vocals in there but they’re so dreamy, so airy, that they’re just floating away in the middle distance, “slipped away discreetly”. He cites Caribou, Steve Reich and Cornelius as influences – add in Animal Collective vibes and you have a good idea of where you stand and how you’ll sway. Co-produced with Stephen Shannon, it sounds impeccable. The first single off the seven-track Blooming, ‘Play Dead‘, was released a few months ago – it seems like the album is going to be an eclectic affair, and one you won’t want to miss out on.
