Haven’t we had quite enough of the whole shoegaze revival now? In the words of Mallory Archer:
Seriously, go watch Archer, it’s great. Oh, and listen to Stagnant Pools – this Indinianapolis brotherly duo’s new track, ‘Consistency’, is a beautiful, swelling thing. Aided by both a beautiful, sweltering, heat-haze throb of guitar treatment and some deep, effortlessly melodic vocals, it’s a wonderfully ambiguous presence, treading the line between being swallowed by its own noise and the far poppier sentiment at is core. In fact, you know those deeply slowed down pop tracks that end up sounding like Brian Eno pieces? This could be a slightly faster one of those. Sort of. Seriously excellent stuff.
