New Music from Sheer

Sheer are back with a brand new EP, and after a few line-up changes, it seems like the band’s brand of pop is going to get a whole lot sweeter. Our first listen is this glorious ballad, coolly floating along with this blissful dream vocal; it’s soothing as it progresses, but just after the 1.30 mark or so, the song takes off for a powerful closing. It’s a nice tease at what’s to come from the band, with their brand new Psychic Quarry EP on the April 28th horizon; look for the release via The Native Sound.

Listen to New Tunes from Sheer

sheerCalifornia’s Sheer are prepping the release of their new 7″ for The Native Sound, who will release it some time in August. I dig the band’s sound, bringing back a more alternative sound that’s not often utilized, contrasting a pristine female vocal with shimmering buzzsaw guitars; it’s as if Mazzy Star decided she wanted to sit back and jam with members of MBV. There’s a little bit of restraint too, allowing to maximize the song’s pop sensibility that pervades. Just really dug it, so felt like sharing it with you all.
