Weekly Shoegaze / Dreampop / Psychedelic / Indie Tips #37

  • London, UK indie-rock 4-piece FIGHTMILK “If You Had A Sister…” second single from forthcoming sophomore LP on Reckless Yes.

London based quartet’s new single take aside their usual punk-infused loud and noisy tones, while remaining vibrant and gripping, to weave sad regretful moods through meandering bassline sorrow into steady mechanical crispy drum beats fueling poignant, bleeding guitar melodies and strong emotional female vocals to elicit dormant psychological realms of self-discovery.

  • Russian dream pop/grunge-gaze/shoegaze band from Yekaterinburg, SHOE SHINE SIX “Lovelorn” new single

Old acquaintances of ours since the early days of the first single “Sunday” back in 2018, the Russian collective drop, despite rumours of a possible split, a new powerful and poignant new single with a groovy elastic bassline that bounces amid off-tempo drum beats and sparkling reverb-drenched guitar melodies that overflow and bleed into abrasive distortion over distant, sad female vocals obsessed with a brutal farewell, to become lost in the devastation.

  • Sidney, Australian indie rock 4-piece Stressless “Airport Flowers” from the second single “airport flowers / 1080p”

Unlike the more brisk, anxious and male-voice-led debut earlier this year, the elusive Sidney band is back blending 90s shoegaze and 60s melodic tones with a dreamy and immersive mesh of energetic strums, noisy reverb-infused guitar distortions and glowing lysergic keyboard swirls over Lush-like swirling deadpan mesmerising female vocals layered with elated harmonies that fall serendipitously into groovy blissful realms.
