pacificUV is an indie-rock band from Athens, Georgia. Across the course of their four acclaimed albums, they’ve mapped out an expansive sonic terrain that includes dream-pop, space-rock, shoegaze and post-rock elements, working with a rotating cast of all-star musicians that has included members of Phosphorescent, of Montreal and Olivia Tremor Control.
After The Dream You Are Awake is pacificUV’s most accomplished album to date. Laced with the longings and terrors of a society preoccupied with apocalyptic fantasies and cold-war nostalgia, the songs recollect a past that no longer seems real, generating sonic atmospheres that, like memories, seem simultaneously swollen and sparse. From the dizzying opening of “24 Frames” to the final inquiries of “I Wanna Be You”, ATDYAA finds its sea-legs amid an ever-expanding emotional universe in which it’s easy to become lost.
The band was originally formed in 1998 in Athens, Georgia by Clay Jordan. After four years of collaborative experiment (one of the band’s initial aspirations was to play a single chord for 45 minutes to determine its color) what emerged was a critically acclaimed, eponymous debut album, which Rolling Stone declared “a masterpiece”. A hypnotic brew of melody and noise, the first record laid out a bold and sprawling ambient landscape.
