Is Bliss – Velvet Dreams EP (Released *4th November)

£12.99 – 180g vinyl on transparent blue or pink vinyl

Introducing ‘Velvet Dreams EP’, the debut from psychedelic shoegazer trio Is Bliss. ‘Velvet Dreams’ is a tantalising taster of this new band’s potential. Its atmosphere resonates strongly with the hazy sixties underground, with its sitarlike waterfall guitars and hypnogogic beats, but other, harder influences bleed through. From the intense hit of fuzzedup anger on ‘Truth’, through to yearning, soaring dreampop gorgeousness of ‘Lure’ and lead track ‘Ocean Blue’, this release sets out to show Is Bliss’ full range and depth.

Many bands today cite My Bloody Valentine as a major influence, but Is Bliss exist because Dean clocked Jimmy’s MBV tshirt and when they struck up a conversation they discovered a shared a love of Slowdive, Spacemen 3, Verve and The Cure, along with a need to escape the mindnumbing boredom of rural Hampshire (Southsea, Portsmouth). This first clutch of songs was developed through live improvisation, but is taken to the next level here by Pat Collier (The House Of Love, Primal Scream, Swervedriver)
