Continuing Revola’s policy of digging up lost classics from the ’60s, Euphoria offer soft focus, multilayered pop with a touch of kitchen sink so prevalent in its day. Pleasant, lysergically whimsical songs are set in a mode ranging from delicate folk to Area Code 615-type bluegrass to full sweeping orchestral dramas. It’s remarkably seamless despite being recorded across three cities and two continents over 12 months.
