Right now, few genres are more saturated than that of dream poppy shoegaze. Enter the upstart and standout trio from Austin, TX: Sleep ∞ Over.

“Romantic Streams” is the latest ultra-compelling single from their upcoming debut, Forever, due out September 27. This one boasts a glimmering synth track that is strangely reminiscent of the theme song to some long forgotten arcade game, as well as some submission-inducing lines like “It’s the light that pulls you close / Nothing more, nothing more.” If you had to soundtrack a slow-motion pillow fight with a dimly lit room full of beautiful strangers, few tracks would serve you as well as “Romantic Streams.”
