There’s nothing soothing about the music of the Massachusetts shoegaze band Kindling. Kindling don’t use their waves of guitar effects to beautify their songs; instead, they drag them through mud. There’s a lot of fuzz on this band’s guitars, and it’s always punishing, never uplifting. Still, Kindling bring some seriously pretty melodies and vocal harmonies in with all that ugliness. Their Galaxies EP is coming out next month, and we’ve already posted their song “Blinding Wave.” Now Noisey has debuted another song, the rumbling “Painkiller,” and you can hear it below.
Galaxies is out 11/6 on No Idea.
