Pleasant, predictable, and absolutely mesmerizing. While it’s a dick move to say an entire genre is pretty indistinguishable (to the obvious outsider), that’s what I’m gonna do. Breathy, gauzy female vocals, and some hipster dude handling the deeply-reverbed, mellow guitars, and drum machine set on snooze. “Crying” is simple and warm, well-balanced, and another near-perfect addition to the dream pop genre.
