The first thirty seconds of Koala Harbor‘s debut single off upcoming album Those Who Are Lost Must Wander IMMEDIATELY evokes the more creative MIDI tones of my favorite video game system, THE Sega Genesis (specifically the more dreamlike tracks of Sonic 2 and 3). Make no mistake though, Mr. Harbor (Mr. Koala?) has crafted a gorgeous track that cannot be ignored. They could easily be mentioned in the same breadth as such greats as Toro y Moi and Dayglow.
Smooth lyrics and a hearty synthetic layering of their digital tracks leave the listener riding the waves as relaxed as a koala on a eucalyptus farm. Please be sure to check out this sterling example of electronica indie-pop as well as Koala Harbor’s 2023 album, Lost Demos, which includes several delectable remixes of “Can’t Fall Asleep”.
These and more can be found on Spotify as well as Apple Music. Please let us know your thoughts over on our Twitterverse page, aptly named “buffaBLOG“.
