Another discovery from the Lookatme competition comes from Khabarovsk, Russia. Under the nature-coated name of Parks, Squares and Alleys stands a young fellow Sergey who plays dream/indie folk melodies. One might say that all the dream pop bands out there sound familiar, but here Sergey stands out with his single bedroom production and a reminiscent sound of the early swedish Peter, Bjorn & John. It is peculiar how one living in the far east of Russia, closer to China and Japan, adapts a very nordic sounding atmosphere. Ah, the power of the internet.
