Celestial Shore – “Die For Us” (Feat. Empress Of) (Stereogum Premiere)

Shaking Through is a documentary series that challenges a band (or bands, in this case) to write a song, record it, and get it down to its final mix all in two days. The most recent ones to take on the task are Celestial Shore with the help of Lorely Rodriguez (better known as Empress Of). It’s an exciting combination — two of our 40 favorite new bands of the year. And it may have only taken two days, but “Die For Us” sounds slaved over, with Celestial Shore creating one of their most hypnotic whirlwinds of psychedelia while Rodriguez’s voice floats on top with an airy sweetness. Listen to the song and check out Celestial Shore’s tour dates below.
