Listening to Candy Claws is like swimming in sort of a Dream Pop fantasy pond. Their music has a very cinematic quality to it that kind of calls for an individual listening experience, which is definitely not a bad thing, but just so you can let your mind grapes drift into the hands of Candy Claws. “Hidden Lands” is the second full length from the band who are based out of Fort Collins, Colorado. And it’s a wonderful follow-up their previous album “In the Dream of Sealife” which was another reverberated wish-wash of melodies. This time, the songs sound more constructed and polished, but still have that Candy Claws sound that makes them memorable.
