The Real Thing

I have to let you know that I sometimes have a difficult time accepting new shoegaze bands these days, probably because I'm so addicted to the original bands that pioneered the genre, and most newcomers only sound like thin imitations of what was already great. Having been such a loyal fan of the shoegaze scene in the late eighties and early nineties, I tend to be more critical of bands trying to send such a resounding echo into the airwaves. I'm not always impressed by what bands today have to offer to the still-clinging scene. I don't mean to discredit the flock of newgaze talent that has been growing slowly over the last few years like a rolling thunder. It is my hope that the scene continues to grow and blossom, although it will never be as magical as it was when it was. But for the first time in a long time, I've found a band that's been as exciting and impressive as some of those great bands that emerged from so many years ago. Thier cohesive sound has been a great reminder of what once was and still lives and breathes new life. They are The Daysleepers. Their music is a perfect blend of slow-Cure atmospheres, breathy and soft vocals that almost float through every mix, and a warm noise that brings back that shoegaze feeling I remember from the past. A swirling haze of guitars and gorgeous white sound fills your senses like the slow motion feel of snowflakes drifting amidst the glow of soft light. The basslines move the tracks through your entire body, and the breathy vocals whisper you into a floating, blissful state. Stars on Fire from the Hide Your Eyes EP is a great example of this bands ability to mesh The Cure, Slowdive and the Cocteau Twins into one gorgeous soundfield. The guitar playing is superb, the atmosphere is rich, the vocals are like a melodic whispser that lull me into a Souvlaki-Disintegration heaven. The Daysleepers are bringing quality shoegaze music into the fold, mixed to audio perfection. The group feels solid and their aim is true. Even the artwork eminates the same lush qualities found in their blissful sound. There is much promise from this band and I am anxious to get my hands on their forthcoming longplayer. Congratulations to the Daysleepers for keeping me wide awake.

Another Melodic Masterpiece

If you love the sweet sounds of bands like Mew & The Annuals you will love The Daysleepers. With the vocals of so unique pitch you can't help but press your ears against the speaker and fall in love. Once you put the album on the crisp rhythm sections will not let you stray. You will for sure have this on repeat.

More Great Newgaze

Another wonderful contemporary shoegaze outfit, The Daysleepers ooze potential on this EP and hit the mark with pinpoint accuracy on tracks such as Moonfrost. Looking forward to a full length and seeing where they progress to.
