Mars To Stay - ep (2011)

Three songs, just eleven minutes, a duo from Cardiff (UK), hidden in an ocean of foggy reverb, reviving the aesthetics of the early nineties slowcore & shoegaze scene, close to artists like Duster, This Invitation, Songs of Green Pheasant, Chuzzlewit, with above in the sky tutelary figures such as Low, The Red House Painters and Slowdive.

My only complaint would be a certain lack of clarity with the vocals, which may be due to production choices but which weakens their impact.

Besides that, their sound, melodies and atmospheres are totally nice and convincing, I totally dig guitars and drums,  something truly happens and floats in the hair.

They may be sitting on a goldmine, once they fully clear their songwriting. Recommended.
