The scene that celebrates itself has become the cult which will not die.
The past decade has witnessed an enormous revival in the sounds of shoegaze and dream pop, with bands across the globe introducing their own ideas.
Taffy are cult heroes in their native Japan, with the band applying a feral, almost grunge-laced edge to their blissful harmonies.
New compilation 'Plus +++' is a neat stopping off point for newcomers, with Taffy piecing together a number of rarities.
Out on June 23rd via Club AC30, Clash is able to premiere a new video from the Japanese tykes. 'have u?' matches glorious fuzz abandon against a near child-like sense of naivety.
Backed with behind-the-scenes footage of the group, it's a nice introduction to an oft under-rated phenomenon.
Watch it now.
