Candy Colors: Casus Belli

Casus Belli cover art
Casus Belli is the debut album from Mexican dreampop band Candy Colors. The best part of operating a music blog is discovering great music in unlikely places. Mexico is not a place usually associated with dream pop bands, but Candy Colors deliver eight tracks that are a demonstration of everything good in the genre. Think of the best parts of Beach House and Real Estate and you have a good description of the sound on Casus Belli. The album is light and poppy, with jangly guitars and melodic lines. The vocals are stand out and unique, making a perfect focus for the music. This is simply a great debut album. Stream and buy Casus Belli at the link below.
