Painted In – ‘When You Sleep’ (My Bloody Valentine Cover)

PAINTED IN - 'YOU ARE'

Chiptune meets shoegaze? An 8bit My Bloody Valentine cover? Yep, apparently so. Once you stop giggling at the ridiculous SNES synth drops, perhaps you’ll actually enjoy this head nod. Because while we may be swamped with ‘Loveless’ covers, Painted In do a pretty good job at it, the vocals especially. And after all, it’s a good bit of fun. Personally, I’d like to hear more of Painted In’s originals, these Canadians describe themselves as a “shoegaze/dreampop project inspired by Anamanaguchi and the Depreciation Guild”, download the ‘You Are’ EP here!

His Clancyness – 'Carve A Peach'

Canada’s Jonathan Clancy (better known as His Clancyness) has released his latest single ‘Carve A Peach’ on a split 7-inch with Shimmering Stars via Splendour. ‘Carve A Peach’ is a slice of delicate indie dream pop with an introverted feel to match. His Clancyness sounds every bit the bedroom production, carried by the simple acoustic guitar and vocals. The added instruments add mass but the tune could stand tall without them.
