I can’t say I know much about shoegaze(as the sole source of my knowledge over the genre is a long gone thirty page thread on hardcore forum, b9) but, I can say that I enjoy it a hell of a lot from what little I’ve heard of it. Nothing are a shoegaze band based out of Philadelphia that are poised to release their latest EP, Downward Years To Come, on Based God Dom’s label A389 Recordings, come November 23rd next month. A new track, “If Only”, is currently streaming exclusively over at Philadelphia premiere music site, The Key. Through its sea of melodic and lo-fi buzzy guitars, the track is calming and serene yet laced with an overall vibe of psychedelia as is intrinsic to what little shoegaze of listened to thus far. I can’t really describe why I enjoy this music other than the fact that I feel as if it fuses a neurological gap between my brain’s natural predisposition towards trippy atmospheres akin to late night stoner T.V. program, Adult Swim, and my brain’s natural predispositions towards things that ring nostalgic. That and it sounds like music that would be played during dances in 80′s slasher movies. Anyhow, enough rambling, stream the awesome “If Only” exclusively via The Key here.
