Ruski-gaze from St. Petersburg. Sorry if that’s offensive. I’m from backwards, un-free Australia, where our totalitarian government won’t let us own automatic weapons and coddles us with free healthcare, so I don’t know any better.
Pinkshinyultrablast have been kicking around since 2007 and have come to some prominence among shoegaze and dream pop aficionados in the last couple. This leans more toward the latter, putting it more in line with the mid-late 2000s ‘nu-gaze’ of acts like M83 than with the actual-’90s vibes of bands like Ride and Lush, to whom other songs of theirs have surely been compared.
This cut comes from their second album, Grandfeathered, which is out February 26 on Club AC30.
