Energy-Gaze – SNOWBALL II: Flashes of Quincy (Doughnut Records, 2017)

Mezclan la complejidad musical del Shoegaze primigenio de Ride con las guitarras y la energía y el Power-Pop de los Posies de los noventa. Todo un hallazgo…

“Songs about breaking your ankle on halfpipes, drinking chai tea and heartbreak; must be the nineties!? Or is it ‘Flashes of Quincy’ by Long Beach based power pop band Snowball II? An album that combines the more rock-influenced shoegaze sounds of bands like Ride and the heavy strum and meddling of a genre one can only identify as a specific type of garage power pop. Throw into these musical nods to a by-gone era the lyrical recipes that shot many alternative bands to the top of charts around the world; such as skating, girls and being generally awkward about things. It’s a smart and satisfying album because it injects an originality into a time period and sound (power pop) that make it sound as fresh as ever; you can see the influence, but it’s mostly covered by originality and creatively diverse songs, ideas and sounds” (The Primal Music Blog)
