From the Peanut Gallery: pacificUV - Weekends

We want our interns at Team Clermont to learn how to digest music, think about records from a critical standpoint, and turn those thoughts into words. What better way to hone this skill of communicating about music than reviewing our very own artists?

‘From the Peanut Gallery’ is our interns’ outlet for record reviews of current bands on our roster. No biased gimmicks here, just some college-aged music lovers giving us their thoughts on our music!

pacificUV – Weekends
Written by Adam LaHaie

As the title suggest, Weekends “spans” Friday through Monday framed by three unstructured ambient interludes (“Friday Night Dream,” “Saturday Night Dream” and “Sunday Night Dream”) lasting about two minutes each. Weekends starts with the dark strings and whimsical noise of ”Friday Night Dream.” Stepping out of the dreamscapes and onto the dance floor, pacificUV introduces playful lyrics over dance floor-ready percussion with “Funny Girl.”

A slightly more subdued “Just4kix” leaves plenty of room for some sonic exploration and experimental noise before leading into a slow burning, blown-out “Baby Blue.” The track brings a nice change of pace to the album with an epic orchestral culmination of space pop and experimental effects swirling together.

A far cry from dream-pop, shoegaze or anything I was expecting to find on this album, the vocoder-heavy “Ballerina” shows these veterans are not stuck in genre boundaries. More chilled-out, hazy atmospheric soundscapes (what pacificUV does best in my opinion) await your ears in “High” and its instrumental introduction, “Saturday Night Dream.”

Just as you may expect, this weekend adventure begins to come to an end
with “Going Home.” Slow building, organ-like synths made this woozy, yet epic track one of my personal favorites.

Hopping out of one genre and into another throughout the album, you will get a taste of ambient dreamscapes, synth-pop, shoegaze and even a little electro dance at times. Without one solid direction, Weekends reminds me of a road trip with no predetermined destination. That is okay though as we are often guilty of sticking to the plan rather than letting an experience happen. With only their third album in 14 years, it is apparent pacificUV does not have a predetermined destination and that is not a problem at all.
