Released by ClubAC30, this new 7" for Nottingham-based Spotlight Kid is a shining ecstatic opus: exciting, trascendental and sound/mind-blowing.
Shoegaze at its finest.
It was 2006 when Spotlight Kid released Their debut record Departure, frankly, criminally underrated. Then, early this year, They released a 3 songs EP, Crystal Dreams, via 2&1 rec, it featured two excellent songs, Take some time, and There's a reason why. - Those two tracks were like the stride before the big jump of this new tunes, turning into something even more gorgeous: All Is Real features the feeling of Joy Division's drumming and the bending guitars of My Blood Valentine, the boys/girl vocals seraphically merge in one soul, - that is Rob McCleary (also on guitar), Chris Davis (drums, of Six By Seven), Katty Heath (keyboard, formerly of Bent) - and it runs through a cathartic psychedelic swell, suddenly turning even bigger than its sound spectrum, a genuine sound-bath therapy, something musically placed between Asobi Seksu's Red Sea crescendo and MBV's You made me realise noise. Pure ecstasy.
Plus, April is a celestial three guitar-driven song, soul elevating stimulation, where the harmony is shaped around vocals, the drums tempo and uptempo, ethereal and breezy. A sense of peace through noise, bliss-out, definitely.
Warmly recommended.

Pubblicato dal ClubAC30, questo nuovo 7 pollici degli Spotlight Kid di Nottingham, UK, è un gioiellino estatico e brillante: adrenalinico, trascendentale, e sound/mind-blowing.
Shoegaze sopraffino.
Nel 2006 gli Spotlight Kid pubblicarono il disco Departure, francamente sottostimato, in modo criminale. Poi quest'anno, un EP di tre pezzi, a titolo Crystal Dreams, via 2&1 rec, dove figuravano due bei pezzi davvero, Take some time, e There's a reason why. Quelle due tracce erano come la rincorsa prima del salto per queste nuove melodie, che sfiorano qualcosa di addirittura più grande: All is real sciorina il feeling delle batterie dei Joy Division misto al bending delle chitarre dei My Blood Valentine, con le voci di Lei e Loro (o meglio, Rob McCleary (anche alla chitarra), Chris Davis (batteria, già Six By Seven), Katty Heath (keyboard, fu Bent) che seraficamente diventano una, e il pezzo corre attraverso un crescendo catartico di psichedelia, che improvvisamente muta di spettro sonoro in grandezza, - una sorta di genuino bagno di suono, qualcosa musicalmente piazzabile tra il finale di Red Sea degli Asobi Seksu, il noise della You made me realise dei MBV. Pura estasi.
Nonchè, April, celestiale pezzo guidato da tre chitarre, stimolazione per l'elevazione dell'anima, dove l'armonia prende formo intorno ai cantati, e i tempo ed uptempo della batteria, il tutto etereo e arioso. Un senso di pace attraverso il rumore, bliss-out qualcuno la chiama.
Non perdete tempo, cercateLi.
