about

"Brooklyn ambient rock group Purmamarca releases their debut studio album, Bring Up the Soft Dreams, with the title track, “Rear View” premiering today. Ryan Henry, lead man of Purmamarca, considers “Rear View” to be the “cornerstone” of their new album. Fitting, with just how damn great of a song it is.

A rhythmic masterpiece, matching brilliant vocals with delicate guitar work, “Rear View” simply melts time away. Here, the ethereal spirit seems to break loose- shaking off typically drowned vocals in exchange for an inspired and lasting impression. Catching myself off-guard, “Rear View” captures one’s attention and gives Bring Up the Soft Dreams center stage on my radar."

Track Name: Rear View
you barely remembered the drive
burning holes in the rear view

did you remember
each word's a warning gun
pointed at your head

lonely figures in the california landscape
surprising though it may seem
despite the weather
despite the sun
the water's always cold

did you remember
each word's a warning gun
pointed at your head?

we're in the rear view
