Alright shoegaze fans, it’s time for you to be introduced to a new Shoegaze band called Sky is Alright. Soft ethereal vocals rest atop a foundation of distorted guitars and heavy drums. The balance between breathy vocals and heavy instrumentation remains a distinctive characteristic of the band’s style. Their influences include various 90s acts such as The Smashing Pumpkins, Slowdive, Mineral and the American Analog Set. The band claims that their inspiration also comes from various characters in history: the astronomer Carl Sagan, the Bauhaus visual artist László Moholy-Nagy, and the avant-garde pianist Erik Satie. This self-titled release is a fantastic edition to the genre.
The first single comes out today. The track is entitled “Mistress Pessimist” and comes with two unique tracks only available for download at Somewherecold Records. Get a copy here: https://tinyurl.com/8kxvsw4. “Mistress Pessimist” is also available as a download with the album pre-order but it does not come with the tracks unique to the single.
This self-titled album comes on beautiful white vinyl (limited to 200 copies) both individually and in very, very limited t-shirt bundles (shirts come in Black, Mint, and Pink). The album will also come on limited CD in a Sleeve as well as on digital. Sky is Alright: Sky is Alright is out June 25th! Get those copies before they are gone.
One more note: Bandcamp Day is this Friday, April 2nd, 2021. If you feel it’s worth the risk, you can let those t-shirt bundles sit there till Friday or scoop them up asap! Otherwise, get as much as you can from the label this Friday allowing the label and artists to get 10% more on their sales.
