Yes this sounds exactly the way you thought it would; twee, ethereal and as precious as a gold ring lying undisturbed on a riverbed somewhere. Celestial are from Sweden and lean on a range of stylish influences. Shoegaze is the predominant marker but you could pluck a host of dream pop champions from their sound. The boy/girl combination gets me every time but there are other attractions to be savoured. The fuzzy production recalls Sarah Records but the lack of sheen tends to highlight the flickering guitars and a piano line that is as loose as an old pair of Joe Bloggs. Celestial have been active of late, recording a fancy Christmas ditty and releasing ‘Fragile’ on 7-inch (no less). Their label Music Is My Girlfriend consistently uncovers twee pop gems and must be congratulated for keeping the dream alive. KD
