Stargazing: When I Sleep - Lucy Van Pelt

Advantage Lucy is an indie band that needs to be much more well-known than they are now. Their blend of soothing ballads with their more upbeat light pop/rock songs are just such a joy to listen to.

Before they were known as Advantage Lucy, they started off their music career as Lucy Van Pelt, with Advantage Lucy being the name of their first album. Eventually, they started performing under that new name, possibly due to copyright issues with the Peanuts franchise. Regardless, this song combines light guitar with even lighter percussion to create an incredibly floaty and dreamlike melody.
