Let me use this post to expose one of my deepest loves: Shoegaze. Now not all shoegaze is created equal and there are certainly some acts who simply cannot pull it off. But when the distorted, feedback-drenched gorgeous of this subgenre is executed properly — it’s a wrap for me. I’m not saying that the trio of Ten Million Lights is at the point where I’m left melted on the floor from their music. But the band’s lead single, “Fast Asleep”, absolutely had me interested in hearing more from them. The vocal melodies during the chorus were particularly gripping as was, of course, the gigantic wall of sound.
