Three vastly different styles of guitar music / Three videos to sink into
London four-piece Mellow Gang channel Beach House as they swim through the night-time waters of dream pop. Solitary synths float above frontwomen Harriet Joseph‘s sorrowful vocals as ‘Vendetta‘ binds Shoegaze guitar with a thoughtful rhythm section.
Gothenburg‘s Rome Is Not A Town recently released their debut LP ‘It’s a Dare‘ via Swedish label Startracks. Lead single ‘I’m In A Brand‘ is a ferocious Sonic Youth leaning guitar attack with vocals that sing as a well as sting. ‘It’s A Dare‘ veers towards the experimental, without ever leaning too far. Guitars build and dual in perfect disgrace of each other whilst the vocals charge in and out of focus.
