Si hay una banda que en esta última década apenas haya variado sus presupuestos iniciales a base de Shoegaze y Space-Rock, ese grupo es 93MillionsMilesFromTheSun, el combo de Doncaster es una de las propuestas más serias y homogéneas del género. Una banda sin apenas sin fisuras, un sonido perfeccionado con los años y un estilo absolutamente personal e irrepetible.
“Feel It Come” explodes into the speakers with a fuzzed-out melody that drapes over driving drums and bass. Different guitar layers are panned either to the right or left, giving the mix a large feel while reverb drenched vocals float in the haziness. Eventually the percussion, bass, and vocals fall away to give way to a fuzzed-out guitar strumming along in an entrancing, slowly drawn out moment. “Snow/Fall” begins slowly, with dreamy guitars and lilting vocals. Guitars trill into walls of sound while others create those wonderful wall-like undercurrents. This moves into the percussion heavy “Rise”, which, for some reason, has a cinematic flavor to me. Fuzzy bass and guitars with less effects on them play melodies while reverb and delayed sounds float about in the backdrop. The piece is a beautiful instrumental that sits as a perfect centerpiece to the EP.
“Lie Down” has a sinister sort of feel in the vocal work as guitars buzz about like walls of bees. Again, and I can’t stress this enough: the bass and drum work on this album are superb! Burns and Kenno are definitely a dynamic duo in that department. “Lie Down” is a fantastic penultimate track and it leads into the finale “Never Knowing Why”. This last song has a synth heavy vibe with sampled drums that sit over drones. Fuzzed out guitars join the mix and different layers move in and out of the mix. This track really demonstrates that93millionmilesfromthesun is more than willing to experiment and, when they do, they produce something fabulous” (Somewhere Cold)
