Only The Lonely Know The Glow Is Failing

Do the Last Sound count as veterans now? Any band that survived the Dublin underground with the same identity for this long surely does. This 7″/digital single is like much indie music these days straddling the divide between electronic textures and more traditional band shapes -No bad thing considering that that divide is after all entirely theoretical. Hints of shoegaze staples MBV and even maybe a little Beach House in here, though the vocals are hidden in layers of delay and reverb soakage, draining them of a little personality but also bedding them into the textures of tune otherwise.
