Track Of The Day :: DEAF - Shards
Words: Linn Branson
Described as "dreampop from New Zealand about selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and lack of Vitamin D" the Wellington-based (via UK) outfit follow their May released debut 'Truancy' with these wholly welcome sub-five minutes of its follow-up, 'Shards'.
Featuring former members of NZ shoegaze band Sunken Seas, DEAF make for an interesting listen as while they are fundamentally a post-punk band, their sound is tempered by delicious dreamgaze sonics.
Both 'Shards', which is released today (July 18), and its predecessor are the first tastes of DEAF's self-titled debut EP to be released later in the year
