Souvenir Driver started as an outlet for singer Nate Wey, of the now defunct post-punk band Happy Prescriptions. Originally a recording project to channel his dreamier songs, it slowly evolved into a full fledged band who often write collectively. Though they call their genre "bliss pop", one can hear traces of shoegaze, post-punk, psychedelia, and 90s indie in their atmospheric music.
High School Records recently put out their newest, self-titled album on vinyl. Souvenir Driver recorded the main tracks in a secluded mountain cabin. It was mixed and engineered by Gregg Williams (The Dandy Warhols, Blitzen Trapper). Consequence of Sound says of the album: "an 8-track collection that spins dream pop and indie rock sensibilities into shoegazing swirls ... each track has a tangible streak of warmth shining on through the haze." A video for the first single "Sunsets", starring Paul Cowsill ("Hair", "Flower Girl") is now online.
