SOUVENIR DRIVER IS A BLISS POP BAND IN PORTLAND, OR.
our newest album will be released april 14 on high school records.
it was recorded in a cabin on mt hood, oregon;
and mixed at the trench studios with gregg williams (blitzen trapper, dandy warhols, sheryl crow)
"Souvenir Driver inhabits a sonic world of dreamlike disconnect."
"Souvenir Driver are ahead of the curve."
"You just might find your favorite band today."
WHEN THE SUN HITS
"Shoegaze with grungy jolts that uppercut the chin."
Souvenir Driver seem to specialize in music that drifts in and out of consciousness -- both yours and their own. Like a conversation with someone who's just woken up and is still half-dreaming.
A NEW BAND A DAY (written by Alex James from BLUR)
"Curious and strange ... A diverse and aural treasure."
Souvenir Driver leave little to be desired. Their dreamy, tonal pop sounds are danceable, interesting, and complex.
RIP CITY REVIEW
They have the ability to alternate between moments of shimmering beauty and hauntingly developmental post-rock.
Living Water is an incredible piece of work.
Threads the sparse, icy grooviness of Joy Division or the xx.
WILLAMETTE WEEK 03.09.14
A wonderfully moody panorama of reverb-y dream-pop.
PORTLAND MERCURY 01.12.13
Loud, immersive all round instrumentation.
SEX BEAT LONDON
A sugary tribute to bands with a sour edge, namely Sonic Youth or Spacemen 3.
WILLAMETTE WEEK 01.15.14
It feels like a high contrast photograph.
Souvenir Driver have sent a bold wave of sounds straight into my ears and I know it was something exceptional.
