PEARLS, THE: Self-titled: LP

Sep 19, 2013

Shoegazing would probably not be the proper point of reference for this band, but I like a few things like that and I like this record for similar reasons. Heavy guitar reverb, dual female vocals, and minimalist drumbeats create a rainy day atmosphere that’s not depressing. They are sort of an upbeat Low. I hate to put it like this, but I just can’t think of another way to say it: It’s good music to chill to. Word.
