Tender Age: Get High / Always (7″, Sinis Recordings, 2015)

Get high/Always se trata del penúltimo lanzamiento de los Shoegazers Tender Age, grupo de Portland que milita en la facción más ensoñadoramente Dream del Shoegaze de guitarras. Sublime.

“Entitled “Get High”, the new lead track finds Tender Age nodding to the pioneers of the 80’s and 90’s Creation Records explosion. With a three guitar onslaught, the band makes every effort to bury the undeniable melodic hooks behind a wall of sound. However, while succeeding in blanketing fuzz, echo and distortion atop six-string melodies, the end result backfires in the greatest way possible – the hooks become an all-encompassing sunkiss on the entirety of the song. On the flipside, “Always”, Leonardo and Tardif take center-stage with long-drawn vocal laments that overlap and harmonize at points, bringing to mind the most beautifully lulling moments of Chapterhouse entwined in the rapturous rolling-reverb of Mazzy Star and Black Tambourine. The two tracks perfectly capture the duality in Tender Age’s nature – a disruptively-spirited complexion (“Get High”) behind an achingly beautiful heart (“Always”). Calling the double A-side single “seasonally appropriate” is an understatement. They’ve written arguably the perfect coupling of a spirited Summer-anthem (“Get High”) and heartbreaking Autumn-lament (“Always”)
