One of the more underrated albums of last year was the seemingly out-of-nowhere You Are All I See; the debut from Active Child. The band is basically just Patt Grossi, and if you’re into M83 (minus the “epic-ness”) you’ll probably dig this album (he opened for M83 last November).
The second single, “Hanging On”, gives a night-drive/end-of-the-night-romp kind of vibe, which is why it surprised me to find the video standing in as more of a soundtrack to a poetic River Runs Through It. This song doesn’t exactly make me think of fly fishing, but the more i watch it the more it works. Check it out, and be sure to track down the whole album. It’s a gem in the rough.
