Shimmers - Tripwires (Single Review)

Tripwires’ debut album has been a long time coming, but now the release is finally on the horizon. I guess if new taster track and first single, Shimmers, is anything to go by then the phrase ‘all good things come to those who wait’ springs to mind.

Shimmers showcases the band’s perfectly crafted sound. They have taken time to create hone their skills and have perfected atmospheric low-fi indie that will undoubtedly make the masses sit up and listen.

The guitar progression on this track is slow burn starting with a gentle melody before breaking into stronger, driving chords paired with laid back vocals melodically bringing the track together.

There are definitely hints of Radiohead and early Muse thanks to low-fi guitar scuzz paired with creeping nonchalant lyrics.

Hailing from Reading, Surrey, these guys are making standout atmospheric indie-pop that wouldn’t have sounded out of place amongst the shoegaze and psychedelia of the nineties/ early noughties chart-toppers.

Catch them at The Great Escape festival, Brighton, next weekend before they rocket to well-deserved success with the release of  their debut album, Spacehopper in June.
