Shimmer and Spin
Chorusgirl return with second album Shimmer and Spin. With their sound rooted in shimmering indiepop with an undercurrent of darkness, Chorusgirl blend the sparkle of 80s bands like The Cure and the Cocteau Twins, with the close harmonies and surf-inspired indie of Dum Dum Girls and La Luz. While tension runs through the album, there are plenty of bright pop hooks to enjoy. The lyrics run from the abstract to the personal, are delicate and angry, but layered underneath is a measured dose of noise and happy fizz.
