Star Horse: Don´t get closer/100 Eyes (Single, 2014)

La banda sonora perfecta para uno de esos momentos mágicos en los que, inexplicablemente, te asalta una felicidad irresistible: el Dream-Pop eléctrico de los suecos Star Horse llega en ese preciso momento. ¡Aprovéchalo!


“Don’t Get Closer bounces around, which is a word that isn’t used in many dream pop/shoegaze song reviews. When I say bounce, I mean something more like clunking, tapping, clicking, like a masterfully angled minigolf putt.
Its the combination of scratchy clean guitar echoing throughout and the strange brushiness of the snare drum – ever since that fateful snare roll of 1991, noisy, effected music has been defined by it’s mind kicking drums, and it’s refreshing to hear a shoegaze drummer taking from the Slowdive school of things. Beware of the 3:40 mark onwards, for here lies the monsterous snarl of a phaser effected electric bass, eerily rolling in and out of sight like a great sea dragon.
100 Eyes rises and rises, and just when you want it to fall, it rises some more. If there was ever a song to snap you out of a bad LSD freakout in a Vegas hotel bathtub, and you didn’t have your Jefferson Airplane tapes on you,100 Eyes is it. Chanting, wraithlike vocals rock you steadily out of the world of deadlines, word counts and time in general” (hhhhappy.com)

Star Horse: Devour (Ep, 2013)

Devour cover art

Desde Suecia no sólo se factura Pop delicado, Jangle o Americana. El Shoegaze es otra de las sonoridades que podemos encontrar en el norte de Europa. Star Horse son una de las bandas con las que podemos deleitarnos y relajar nuestro punto de vista sobre el Shoegaze.

The new release is called Devour. The record starts with a majestic track called “Hope To Feel A Hand”, shaking the established sound up a bit by opening the new EP with a brief passage of pure synth polyphony, a melodic synthesizer hook augmented by delayed stacatto pulses and set against expansive sweeps. The synths are quickly punctuated by sparse booms of percussion, and then cascading guitar chords and chiming melodic guitar counterpoint open the sound up to a practically symphonic level of grandeur before the vocal even starts. An auspicious beginning to a four track set that concludes with “Darkness Is A Color”, a fully reverbed but otherwise relatively stripped-down affair that leans hard on simple power chords and may resonate well with fans of The Jesus and Mary Chain. Devour provides a worthy cap to a strong trilogy of EP releases” (When the Sun Hits)
