#356: Whirr - Sway

Released: September 22 2014
Genre: Shoegaze
Label: Graveface


As a genre, shoegaze is something of a mystery to me. Not because I fail to see the appeal, quite the opposite in fact, but because at the height of its popularity I was still pissing and shitting myself on a regular basis whilst somehow managing to monosyllabically convey to my parents that I wanted to hear Paul McCartney’s “Frog Chorus” on repeat. As such the world of Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine et al was closed to me, and in some respects, it still is.
