What’s the story?
San Francisco duo’s debut album of shoegaze gone West-coast.
What does it sound like?
Er, waves, actually. Purring psychedelic pop flooded in churning noise.
Love Fade is shimmery and alluring as a desert mirage, and The Waves crashes beautifully. She’s got a voice of velvet, which complements the deep, expansive textures on show perfectly.
Haze Interior: cliched shoegaze song title, cliched shoegaze song. Problem is melancholy and ethereal with distorted guitars, is quite a saturated market. Would you reach for this over ‘Loveless’?
Good, but they’ve not reinvented the wheel – or indeed the big fuzzy guitar.
