La Casa al Mare – ‘M’

Amazing debut from Italian shoegazers La Casa al Mare! ‘M’ is the group’s first single, with the b-side ‘CD Girl’ (available now via Lady Sometimes Records). Both are beautifully crafted, recorded at Studio Wax in Rome. The three piece is Paolo Miceli (formerly of My Violent Ego / Sea Dweller), Marco Poloni (formerly of La Calle Mojada) and singer/guitarist Alessio Pindinelli. There’s no official release date for their debut full length ‘Moonlight’ as yet, hopefully soon!

Rev Rev Rev – ‘Catching A Buzz’

Rev Rev Rev snapped up Clash‘s track of the day last week with ‘Catching A Buzz’, their first official single (out October 20 via Winwin Records). Some fans may be scratching their heads, haven’t they already got an album out? Yep, the Italian foursome self-released an album last year (available here) but the single is Rev Rev Rev’s debut label release. Fuzz, noise and bendy notes abound – lap it up!

Stella Diana are a five piece from Naples that blend new wave and shoegaze on their latest album ’41 61 93′ (free download). Album cut ‘Edward Teach’ is a stand out, it sets up the tension before hitting you with a wall of dreamy vocals! Stella Diana have been making music since 1998, influenced by the likes of Slowdive, Ride, Pale Saints and Chameleons.

Last Movement – ‘New Love’

LAST MOVEMENT 'NEW LOVE / FEELS LIKE YOU'

Italian shoegaze trio Last Movement are self releasing a new 7inch in March featuring ‘New Love’ and ‘Feels Like You‘. The former is a maze of melodies with whispered vocals and guitars coming in at all angles. Impressive work! Since forming in 2011 the Roman-based outfit have toured alongside The Soft Moon, Loop and A Place To Bury Strangers.
