Houston’s ridiculously loud shoegaze band Pink Playground, released ‘Destination Ecstasy’ last week via Mexican Summer. The eight track album features the smokey song ‘Dark Bloom’ along with a bunch of material originally released on harder to find EPs.

‘Dark Bloom’ has a lot going on. Guitars overlap, playing seemingly different melodies and rhythms as the vocals get pushed into the background. Harkening back to the 80s, there’s dissonant synths and lo-fi delay throughout the record. You’ll either love it or loathe it.

Pick up Pink Playground’s ‘Destination Ecstasy’ from Mexican Summer.
