With a sleepy blend of post-hardcore and emo, Seahaven return with Reverie Lagoon: Music for Escapism Only, a wildly ambitious album that makes good on the creative promise of the band's early work. Exploring ethereal, atmospheric textures, the album feels like a visit to the ocean on a cold day, pairing a feeling of loneliness with a sense of enormity by way of the album's gentle, reverb-soaked sounds. As the name implies, Reverie Lagoon is an album that transports the listener to another world, providing a chance to wander around the drifting, airy landscapes of the band's own version of its home state.
