From Russia with love comes the a five-piece dream-pop outfit Pinkshinyultrablast who create happy songs for happy zombies.
The band take their name from the 2004 album by Astrobrite (American shoegazers) — an act who were, according to the band, instrumental in how they have: “Researched spaces between ambient, heavy guitar and pop music…”
Now they release a new single ‘Kiddie Pool Dreams’ out on October 2nd on the London-based Club AC30 label.
We had a listen:
An invincible screech starts this cluttering fluster off…
It’s filled with attitude, ferocious energy and assorted clunk. Like a bear going mad in your loft looking for a hidden jar of sweet honey.
There are also silver-bells and smaller droplets of rhythm. And a shiny voice that is so transparent that it is almost invisible. But not entirely.
This is an incredible piece from an amazing band. Experimental, lightweight, efficient and charming.
But it is not mainstream. So the citizens of Squaresville need not apply.
