The immediate comparison which comes to mind when drawing any form of parallel to align Chicago dream-pop duo Sister Crystals with any which other contemporary artist must surely be Melody’s Echo Chamber. And For So Long – the title track from Colin Croom and Lauren Whitacre’s début full-length – may more faithfully recall Endless Shore than it does Crystallized, though it immediately sounds that bit more multifaceted than Prochet’s latest projet. With Whitacre’s elegiac sighs refracted back through a spectral gauze, it may not find itself at the apex of invention, yet it positively radiates a keening emotion – and one which is capable of making a gloriously human connection.
