OVER: Vacant Daydream: CS

Heavy, spacey, dark, and dreamy, Over’s Vacant Daydream is perfect for hi-key goth emo punx who spent hot summers dancing to The Faint in their bedrooms while overapplying eyeliner before cruising at metal shows. Standout track “Death of Autonomy” gives me some 45 Grave meets The Gossip realness. It’s great to see a new band identifying as death rock, especially one that centers justice and healing in their mission. –Candace Hansen (overpdx.bandcamp.com/album/vacant-daydream)
