British shoegaze has been experiencing a heavy resurgence in recent months thanks to acts like Nai Harvest and Inheaven, and Swindon four-piece Rain are the latest new band helping the genre return to its glory days. Their debut track “Slur” is chaotic yet quietly controlled grunge-pop that sits amongst the cracks of everything between ’90s shoegaze, scuzzy post-punk, and DIY noise rock. It’s taken from the band’s forthcoming debut EP, Symphony Pains, and the accompanying video is a haze that matches the song’s distorted guitars. Oh, and major props to the guitarist for wearing a Nai Harvest T-shirt. Watch below via DIY.
Symphony Pains will be released on Close To Home Records next year.
