whirr - june 7" ep 2011

an outfit formerly known as whirl, fronted by nick bassett, together as friends like many before them that's how usually great bands are put together. in 2009, whirr had to drop the last letter of their name due to some legal issues but the music live on. the new single contains an excellent track called "june bouvier", a mixture of dreampop melodies and ethereal vocals. it's more like sarah records meets creation label, in fact you can almost easily guess who their influences are "early nineties shoegaze". they don't make music like these anymore! it's unconditional wall of sound surely captures your undivided attention. solid droning guitar riffs with siren-like voice, a total excursion of  dreampop overload. this is the debut single from the california sextet's upcoming lp, out on tee pee records.

june bouvier...
kudos to the band and thanx for being "different" and sounding out of mainstream!
we are sick of ga-gas. keep the genre alive!
