Music: Love Spirals Downwards
Perfect visual for their music.Love Spirals Downwards
were a Dream Pop
duo from California. It consisted of Ryan Lum and then-girlfriend Suzanne Perry. Although they never achieved commercial success, their cult following for their first two studio albums, Idylls (1992) and Ardor (1994) have gained them an audience. Later on in the duo's existence, they focused more on Electronica experimentation, which some people argue is either better or worse than their original sound. They split in 1999 as Lum and Perry's relationship was souring.
Their original sound is quite unique, even for Dream Pop
. The vocals are a strange combination of Enya
and Liz Frasier from Cocteau Twins
. The music sounds like a mix between My Bloody Valentine
and Dead Can Dance
. It's definitely out there, but still awesome.
They are sometimes mistaken as a New Age
band, and while their music (as stated above) has some New Age
qualities, it's mostly Dream Pop
. Oh, and Perry's voice is one of the prettiest voices out there.
