Boomkat Product Review:
The basement pop sound that US bands have always been so good at has recently taken a turn for the mainstream. With chill-wave bands taking their place in the upper quarter of any ‘buzz’ list you’d care to stumble across, it’s hardly a surprise that a new one pops up seemingly every time you hit ‘refresh’ in firefox. Soars are one such band, and while they might be lumbered with this nu-wave of no-fi, they appear to draw just as much on the shimmering dream pop of 80s Britain than they do Animal Collective, Women and No-Age. Hints at Jesus and Mary Chain and the Cocteau Twins litter this tape-recorded, suburban debut, and while the record is textural and prolonged at times, it never goes into fully-fledged ambience and always retains the semblance of songs. For some reason I’m reminded of the attempts Sonic Youth made in the late 80s and early 90s to fuse their heady noisier side with the grunge-pop songs that were clawing for pop superiority at the time. There are pop songs in there somewhere, but it’s not what you might hear initially. Good things take time to unravel.
