Bleary Eyed are a shoegaze band from Philadelphia, and so they certain do sound prefer it. On a brand new self-titled EP launched at present, the group places a barely poppier spin on the experimental dream-pop of acts like Knifeplay, TAGABOW, and Spirit Of The Beehive. Alex G’s tweaked melodious imaginative and prescient looms massive, as does, effectively, your complete historical past of the subgenre. That is an ain’t-broke-don’t-fix-it scenario, an skilled spinning of a wheel that doesn’t should be reinvented. Name that damning with faint reward if you need, however from the intricately layered vocals of opener “Run” to the racing distortion of “Tree,” these items is satisfying my shoegaze urge at present. Pay attention beneath.
Bleary Eyed is out now on Born Losers.
