Shoegaze Craze With Star Tropics

1554348_588335547943054_2733155565290083228_nStar Tropics, who hail from Chicago, have been somewhat quiet since they first emerged in 2013, but now now they’re back and you should be jumping for joy. Why, you may ask? Because this band is creating killer shoegaze music that is bound to be big. Below, you have the infectious duo of this band’s first studio tracks in two years, and they certainly do not disappoint. First up is “Summer Rain,” which has infectious dream pop hooks all throughout, accompanied with bombastic percussion and dueling male/female vocals that will crush you with sunshine. “Swept Away,” is pretty special as well, allowing for the addition of jingly-jangly percussion and those glossy guitars that don’t quit. I’m telling you, this band is special, and they should be at the top of your watch list of up-and-comers.

  • Another real ‘sign of the times’ that a shoegaze revival is underway comes in the form of 30 bands from 16 countries (5 of the 6 inhabited continents are covered), who have united together in this EPIC (and free) shoegaze compilation. Plus it’s been endorsed by Creation Records’ founder Joe Foster & a whole slew of first-wave shoegazers from Swervedriver, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Telescopes, Swallow, Slowdive.
