For most of their career, Russian trio Pinkshinyultrablast established themselves as one of shoegaze’s finest outfits. While Slowdive and Ride were on hiatus, they filled the void with the expansive, chiming flair. For their third album, Miserable Miracles, however, the band expand their reach and unveil their most expansive LP to date.

Miserable Miracles is more than just a record. It is an experience that features three destinations (or layers if you will). The first is the dance floors of Earth. The intoxicating opener “Dance A.M.” buzzes with bubbly synths and percolating beats On “Eray”, the threesome head back in time and the age of early ’80s new-wave disco. A psychedelic-disco vibe, meanwhile, percolates on fantasy-like “In The Hanging Gardens”, which is as imaginative as Tim Burton’s films.


The heavens is the next stop. The groovy and relaxing “Triangles” is the soundtrack to the journey through the clouds. Upon arrival, the soft notes of “Blue Hour” and the gorgeous “Find Your Saint” welcome all newcomers. Beyond the clouds awaits the cosmos, which is where Pinkshinyultrablast reside.

In The Hanging Gardens was released on February 23rd, 2018 via Club AC30 and Shelflife Records,

The striking instrumental “Earth and Elsewhere” is an alluring spectacle while “Looming” is Pinkshinyultrablast as their dynamic shoegaze best. Whether they send listeners floating through galaxies or grooving in little clubs, Lyubov (vocals), Rustam (synths/electronics), and Roman (guitars) demonstrate they can appeal to all of our senses. They show there is more to their art than meets the eye.

Miserable Miracles is out now via Club AC30.

Fever Dream impress on ‘Heads Will Roll’

London trio Fever Dream are releasing their new album ‘Squid’ this Friday (29th September) via AC30, and we’ve got the first play of the latest of its tracks titled ‘Heads Will Roll’ .

‘Heads Will Roll’ is a swirling storm of a track, with barely contained reverb mixing with washed out vocals. Straddling the line between shoegaze and grunge, it’s an intoxicating blend.

The band are set to play an album launch show at the MOTH Club in London this Friday (29th September) to celebrate the release of ‘Squid’.
