Birthday is the collaboration between vocalist Kamran (Fake Laugh) and producer LUKA, where they specialize in hazy, lush soundscapes. We loved their last two singles, “Do It All The Time,” and “We Need To Talk,” now, they’ve released a third track from what we’re hoping is something much bigger in the future. “Night Rider” has the same shaky, delicate vocals and gauzy, lo-fi production, this time forgoing the deep, pounding bass line for a bright, wavering guitar melody and sparse, clapping synth. It’s trance-like and euphoric all at once, remaining a perfect participant in the dream pop genre.
