New Sounds #80 August 2 2016




GENDERS - LIFE IS BUT A DREAM
Portland, Oregon dreampop quartet share this track, released last month, from their forthcoming EP, 'Phone Home'. Warm, hazy reverb and synth blended with Maggie Morris' melancholy vocals and the swell of guitars. Star rating: ★★★☆




CASTLE PINES - HOLLOW CAUSE
The Californian alt-rock four-piece return after an extended break with a grunge rock/shoegaze vibe, fielding pensive vocals over pounding drums and driving, reverberant guitar. Star rating: ★★★☆




SLOWLY SLOWLY - GOOD FRIENDS
Taken from the emo post-punk Melbourne duo's (Ben Stewart, Alex Quayle) debut album 'Chamomile' released last week. Don't be fooled by the low-key passages in this slow-builder track as they can get pretty caustic at times. Star rating: ★★★★☆




HALYCINE - ELIXIR
We featured Chloe Raynes  here in June with 'Circles', now the Brooklyn-based, half-British artist is sharing another track from her debut five-track EP, 'In The Salt' out on August 12. A dark tale of infatuation, that lingers over echoing guitars and airy vocals. Star rating: ★★★★☆




HIGH VIOLET - GIVE IN
Follow-up to debut single 'Only Heart' from Sydney-based indie-pop quartet, produced and engineered by Woody Annison (Flyying Colours). Dulcet vocalled dreampop with a psychedelic/garage-rock edge.
Star rating: ★★★
