WHIRR "Pipe Dreams" LP
WHIRR's celestial sound has been described as "if My Bloody Valentine decided to cooperate with Sonic Youth" and has drawn comparison to influential acts such as Slowdive, Lush, Ride and The Cocteau Twins. With Pipe Dreams, the band's supercharged spirit rejuvenates the '90s shoegaze sound, providing a widescreen update for the post-millennial era. WHIRR's wall of lush guitars, breathy vocals, dreamy synth and thunderous drumming propel listening ears into a near-cinematic realm where instantly catchy melodies and emotional, enveloping atmospheres hang perfectly in the balance. The sound of WHIRR is a totalizing crush when texture and volume hit perfect balance and bright pop melodies wander through dark, dense guitar noise. Twenty years after My Bloody Valentine awed music fans with its now-classic "Loveless" LP, WHIRR takes hold of the reins and let's its fluid, immaculate surge of drones and reverberations light the way.
