Black City Lights-Parallels EP
The new EP by Wellington, New Zealand's Black City Lights is now available for download via Amazon and iTunes. This EP plays almost like an LP in that it includes more substance than your typical EP.
Most of the six tracks start off with eerie, dreamy ambiance, before erupting with atypical drum patterns and an array of sparkling and memorable electronic sounds, such as layered guitars and reverb-laden keyboard lines. A few of the tracks also include looped vocals that sound deep and pristine.
If you are in the market for some shoegazing dream-pop brillance, that I can highly recommend Parallels. Listen to the fourth track, Collapsing Horizons below. It can be a challenging listen, but the the reward is worth it!
