Norman’s Jake Davidson beautifully reconciles his love for tradition-rich acoustic music with old-school English drum ’n’ bass electronica on his full-length debut, “Dream Familiar,” as recording project Two Suns.
Davidson’s songwriting isn’t to be overlooked, either. “My eyes are open to all the problems / Maybe that’s my problem,” he wonders over lost sleep in “Eyes to Hope.” It seems an earnest confession amid the murky sonic haze around it, reminiscent of Radiohead’s warmer, more human sentiments on “In Rainbows.”
I think Two Suns is at its best when it locks into these great, snare-driven, minimalist grooves. “Ran Wild” proves the cream of this crop, chugging along in three distinct, beautiful parts.
At 10 tunes, “Dream Familiar” is being released one track at a time at the act’s Bandcamp page. Readers can keep up with the progress on our music blog, OKSee. —Matt Carney
