Lucid Express – No Talk

Hong Kong 'gazers Lucid Express first jumped into my consciousness with the release of their 2018 single ‘Ado’. At the time the band were known as Thud and aptly named they were, too. That single fairly knocked me for six. Fast forward to 2021 and the release of their debut, self-titled album. The album was a critical and commercial success, quickly selling out two variants of the album on vinyl. […]

Sugar For The Pill – Wanderlust

I’d been hearing about the band Sugar For The Pill for a little while now. I had them on my ‘must listen to’ list. It wasn’t until my pal Richard from The Velvet Hum messaged saying that I really needed to give them a listen that I sat up and paid attention. Fast forward an hour and I’d pre-ordered the vinyl and was loving what I was hearing. So, who […]

Blushing – Possessions

Returning with their sophomore album, Possessions, is Austin’s Blushing. Now mainstays in the shoegaze and dream pop landscape, I was ready for more of their dreamy brand of song smithery. I should add it’s not for no reason they find themselves synonymous with the term dream pop. They have crafted a sound built on the foundations of all that we loved about those 90’s acts. Lush, Ride even Ultra Vivid […]

It’s been a year since their stunning debut album Death of a Very Good Machine and Eep are back with their sophomore release Winter Skin. Bands tend to place a bit more time between albums but with a global pandemic stopping live shows and a band full of creative minds there’s no stopping Eep. The debut album predominately featured the lush vocals of Rosie Varela. This time the band have […]

Dreamback – Escape

I’m a huge post rock fan and can find myself wallowing in fifteen-minute-long instrumental tracks and loving every minute. What I really enjoy though is when post rock merges with other genres to create something new and exciting. This is exactly what UK-based producer/musician Jamie Duddy has achieved with his musical project Dreamback. You may remember hearing his DKFM debut on The Velvet Hum Goes to England a few weeks […]

Un.Real – Islands

Close observers of the shoegaze scene will have picked up the last two singles from Puerto Rico’s Un.Real. “Blue Garden” and “Lovely One” heralded a band arriving fully formed and ready to conquer the world. The band have had an ever-evolving list of members around main man Gardy Perez-Ruiz. With influences ranging from The Cure to My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive they have forged their own unique brand of dream […]
