Dark and beautiful Shoegaze. That’s Whirr. Formerly called Whirl, they’re about to release About, their second EP to date. Their first, Pipe Dreams, garnered them some My Blood Valentine and Slowdive comparisons which definitely got my attention. “Swoon” is the first track released from About where I’m hearing little touches of Ride and Cocteau Twins influence in there as well as the aforementioned MBV and Slowdive. I’m diggin’ it. About drops on July 9th. You can buy and read more about “Swoon” here and listen below. I love me sum gud shurgaze!
