WL//WH Track Of The Day: DESARIO “Things We Left Behind”

WL//WH Track Of The Day  DESARIO

Formed in early 2004, Californian 4-piece based in Sacramento, Desario return with their fourth album, “Things We Left Behind”, after a five-year hiatus from“III” in 2017 on Test Pattern Records, joining the roster of Wilmington, NC‘s independent label Fort Lowell Records, to ‘churn out another tight set of Indie Rock tunes that mines darker-tinged Shoegaze rooted in British Post-punk and New Wave’.

After the heady, fizzy and crystalline jangly meanderings of the first preview “Strange Shapes”, it’s time for the somberly meditative and immersive shoegazing title track, “Things We Left Behind”, to be unveiled.

The song, lyric-wise, sheds regret and sorrow from the unfulfilled aims shared by a heartbroken couple.

Ticking cymbal lilts trigger radiant skyward resonances, reverberating over a vaporous warm carpet of dilated blissed-out dizzy haze of droning fuzz-laden guitar layers, weighed down by subtly latent tension and distress, to swell, punctuated by smooth yet steady rhythmic pulsations, in a sparkling wistful release, echoing airy, nostalgic vocals weaving achingly pensive melancholy through an excruciating tapestry of disenchanted dreams.

Desario‘s fourth full-length album, “Things We Left Behind”, is due to be released, on 12inch Vinyl + Digital formats, on July 15, 2022, via DIY label Fort Lowell Records. The CD version is available on pre-order from Sunday Records.
