It only makes sense that when someone says shoegaze, someone nowadays would say Belgium. In the spectrum of where those bands can come from, the band Slow Crush are gearing up for the second reveal from the small area. For the second album Hush coming in October, the band is also gearing up for tour. To celebrate the news they’ve revealed a new single “Swoon” and it’s fairly extraordinary to say the least.
The song definitely has that slow shoegaze feel to it. The band knows exactly how to embark on such sonic gazes while exhibiting a fearless tone. Their sound echoes in shoegaze melody while speeding into a darkness. The honesty here is in the unknown versus the known, and even in that it’s difficult to place them on a list. While the vocals may be buried in the music, there’s still just enough to draw you towards their overall sound and become their newest fan.
The song can be heard above or wherever you stream music. Hush is available for preorder directly from Quiet Panic ahead of its October 22 release. Slow Crush is on tour starting April 08 at Knitting Factory in New York, NY until May 24 at The Fillmore in Philadelphia, PA. Their ticketing information is available here.
