Leicester’s newly upbeat dreampop-shoegazers take another step into the sunshine with Daisy Age, their last one-shot release before they begin work on their first full-length album. A shimmering ray of gently psychedelic indie, it’s genre-straddling without pushing too many limits. At five minutes, there’s a little more to it than one might expect from the opening notes, but it’s never in danger of outstaying its welcome. Frontman Alex Clemence breezes assuredly through a whole bunch of hooks over the top of pleasant, twangy instrumentation. Quite a way from world-changing, but certainly day-brightening, and well-placed to work beautifully in a live setting.
Daisy Age is available from all good digital retailers now.
