Boomkat Product Review:
Exquisite mix of Angolophile shoegaze pop jangle and washed-out widescreen Texan melancholy...
“Nicolas Nadeau audaciously bares all as the frontman of Austin’s preeminent shoegaze ensemble Single Lash on their debut LP Providence out October 26, 2018. Heavy walls of effects drenched guitars and synthesizers back Nadeau’s dejected vibrato and woefully honest song writing, epitomizing the art of crestfallen chic. Single Lash delivers introspectively satiating songs that emote the existential struggles of heartache and loneliness through thick layers of feedback draped across a driving rhythm section. Providence is the breakout effort from Single Lash, captivating audiences with a seductive embrace while offering an engaging and cathartic release.
Providence is Nadeau’s pursuit of genuine self-examination. There is an underlying confession throughout the album’s eight tracks, eloquently expressing the pain of regret with poetic and humble exposition. The charismatic lament of songs like “Broken Tongue” and “Unheard” is profoundly candid and broadly accessible emotional territory that carries a visceral and personal appeal. Gracefully embodying the true essence of the lyrics, Single Lash’s lush instrumentation vividly contextualizes the nuanced hues of Nadeau’s voice with intuitive reply. Acoustic 12-string guitar and piano on “Shredder Orpheus” and “Visitations” complement the sustained trails of fuzz and reverb while bass and drums hold down a smooth and catchy structural anchor. Single Lash’s dense subject matter is conveyed through unabashed pop melodies and irresistible hooks on “Frozen Honey” and “Come True” giving the listener immediate satisfaction while instrumentally descending into tone authorship. From powerful lyrics and meticulous musicianship to the ominous cover art by Nadeau himself, this album is the culminating effort of Single Lash to establish themselves as an important new voice in underground music.
Like many great songwriters and performers who came before, Single Lash has ingeniously dialed into the tribulations of the human condition. Nadeau’s poignant persona and musical artistry make Providence a destructively beautiful and rewarding master work.”
