Sure, dream pop / shoegaze / noise rock might be ten a-penny right now, but that doesn't mean that ClashMusic is tiring of those reverb draped sounds.
Low Moon Low are the next pedal paddlers to head our way. A brand spanking new four piece from London, the band's sound is mid-way between the engaging sighs of Galaxie 500 and the chugging motorcycle rock of mid-era Mary Chain (The Jesus and).
However that's not to say that they don't have their own sound. After all, that enormous reverb effect leaves plenty of space for the quartet to uncover their own identity, to carve out a niche of their own making.
New single 'Calm Now' does exactly that. There's a menace here, a sense of urgency which is alien to those normally placid shoegaze sounds, with Low Moon Low injecting a sense of life in the capital during the 21st century into that well worn template.
Out on June 3rd, ClashMusic has been given the video premiere.
Watch it now.
