I have only one song to go on from this band. Thankfully, I’m super enthusiastic about it. From Belgium, we are presented with the haunting and reverb-laden Newmoon. Currently I’ve been having a real dig on bands like Nothing and Slowdive, and this fits right in with what I’ve been yearning for musically. A little bit Shoegaze, a little bit post punk and mostly it packs plenty of energetic heart and soul in somewhere around 2 and a half minutes. I just love how those vocals are heavily bedded into the mix, completely buried under a world of jangly reverb and solid bass lines. I feel a bit of nostalgia here, as around the same time last year I discovered Chain of Flowers. These bands really aren’t a million miles away from one another. Much like last year when I got into Chain of Flowers, Newmoon just came at a time that’s right. The weather is getting a more bearable, the days are getting a little longer and time spent riding my bike is calling me. If this taster is any indicator, this forthcoming EP will be spending a lot of time with me over the coming months. I can’t wait to hear more. Plus, Secret Voice are putting this out (Jeremy Bolm of Touche Amore’s record label); and that’s just another reason to get immediately hooked.
More words. Look out fit their 7” coming out on Secret Voice, it will blow your mind hole
