Balloon Ascents: “Although there’s a taut sense of cabaret about Balloon Ascents, they also have a light, folky subtlety in their sound – refreshing for such a young band – which has perhaps been influenced by Stornoway.”
Montmartre: Layers of intricate guitars, synths and melodic bass riffs. The imperfect cadence to this uneasy offering is the beat-up Apple Mac in the corner, serving up jittery, agitated beats and glitches.
Blood Red Stars: A woozy mirage of pop noise. There are wispy curlicues of baggy. There are fuzzy hints of rock’n’roll. There are ghostly memories of shoegaze.
