Kigo – ‘Like Amber’

kigo-never-knowing

Kigo has unveiled the fresh single ‘Like Amber‘, an airy shoegaze tune that’s incredibly pretty! The Brisbane-based solo artist (Dwayne Pearce) delivers his most sublime track yet, with a submerged feel throughout. This time round there’s no eardrum quivering blast of white noise (which I was waiting to hear on first listen). Lovely work! ‘Like Amber’ follows December’s ‘Never Knowing’, both will appear on a forthcoming 2015 release.

The wait is (almost) over for The Black Ryder‘s second studio album ‘The Door Behind The Door’ (out February 24 – presale). EW has premiered the Aussie shoegazers latest single ‘Let Me Be Your Light’. It’s hushed tone plays out like a gothic lullaby. If a James Bond theme was ever to go dream pop, this may be it! Beautiful song. It follows the diverse singles ‘Seventh Moon’, ‘Let Me Be Your Light’ and ‘Santaria’. The Black Ryder have also announced a support slot with The Jesus And Mary Chain on their upcoming US tour.
