When Leeds band NIGHT OWLS released their debut EP ‘INFORMALDEHYDE’, they were slinging out raw and loud sounds of grunge. Things have musically appeared to make a slight turn as the group have now unveiled their new track titled ‘Out Of My Head’. Opting for more of a dreamy shoegaze fronting, gone are the fast, fuzzy guitar riffs but rather mellow strums and easing vocals.

Having dropped a number of records over the past two years, Leeds band Colour of Spring return with another hazy shoegaze cut titled ‘Echoes’. Taken from their self-titled EP landing April 21 on House of Love Records, the tune, stacked with fuzzy guitar riffs and the serene vocals of Shane Hunter, is perfectly fitting for a mellow summer day in the sun as the content revolves around stepping out of the blissful moments as a child and now transitioning into adulthood, and everything that comes with it.
Chilean trio Trementina will release their debut LP ‘810’ on March 24 via Burger Records. One of the offerings taken from the upcoming album is the dreamy single ‘Oh Child’.

Twin Limb’s sound has been described as everything ranging from dream pop, post-punk and dark folk, on down to psychedelic. Whilst many of those elements can indeed be found in their music, there is something ‘other’ about what they create. Self-releasing their debut EP ‘Anything Is Possible And Nothing Makes Sense’ back in late 2015, their original sound took a re-shaping with the adding of third member Kevin Ratterman (the band previously only consisted of Maryliz Bender and Lacey Guthrie). The record was packed with sweet melodies gliding head-on with hazy, gorgeous and sometimes haunting instrumentation. In a way, this was the perfect set-up to their full-length ‘Haplo’, which is the band’s mastering of their elevating, gumbo mixture of genres.

Tapping into the feel of early 80s new wave and post-punk whilst still using their platform on shoegaze as an underneath, the band have found an excellent blend, which makes us eager to hear their upcoming release.
Many months back L.A.-based band The Raveonettes launched their ‘RAVE-SOUND-OF-THE-MONTH’ project in which the duo would unveil a new song every month until December.

Falling somewhere between shoegaze and post-punk is the latest track ‘Light Rain’ by NYC band Dinowalrus. Taken from their forthcoming LP ‘Fairweather’, the song is a mid-tempo, easing bit that slides progressively with catch hooks and epic build-ups, all graciously emitting a sound that is reminiscent of Manchester’s musical glory days of the late 80s and early 90s.
