Better known as the lead singer for Little Grey Girlfriend, Erika Lloyd has ventured out on her own with her solo debut Power, on which she blends eccentric indie pop with chamber music.

One half of folk-pop band the Sweater Set, Sara Curtin will be releasing her second solo album Michigan Lilium on July 24. Just in time for its release she’s just out out a new video for the haunting dreampop track “Sweet Dreams”, which in a neat twist, involves baking a cake.

A smart decision too, because the track’s breezy, carefree quality is perfectly timed for the summer, and many will enjoy its sweetly psychedelic tones. Like a bubblegum Animal Collective, to be honest.
