So yesterday I excitedly posted about the new Neil Halstead project, Black Hearted Brother. Keeping our gaze squarely on the floor, here’s the latest from Dallas Slowdive disciples Little Black Dress.
Theirs is a more pop-centric brand of shoegaze, taking the reverb, guitar textures and buried vocals of the genre into a concisely tuneful direction. “Lowered Lids”, the lead single off forthcoming EP Dunes, drives that point home with its subtly catchy hooks:
The EP is a tidy 4-song package with a couple more dream pop anthems and the heavy-breathing instrumental title track. If you’re into spotify, stream the whole thing here:
Dunes will be available on iTunes via Idol Records August 27.
