The Enters – ‘Language Of Flowers’

the language of flowers-pale saints-tribute

British rock legends Pale Saints have been given an impressive tribute thanks to The Blog That Celebrates Itself. A 17-track compilation of Pale Saints covers has been released called ‘Language Of Flowers‘. It features a collection of contemporary dream pop and shoegaze acts including The Foreign Resort, Angel Falls, VHS Dream, Eyes Behind The Veil and DIV I DED. London’s The Enters have covered the title track, which is a precursor to their new EP (expected in April). Side note, if you’ve never heard Pale Saints 1990 record ‘The Comforts Of Madness‘ – you’re missing out!

The Enters – ‘Small Town Love’

The Enters debut EP ‘Small Town Love‘ was released digitally today (download) with a vinyl run planned for July. The London-based shoegazers tracked the record at Lightship95 with producer Rory Attwell and together they’ve created one of the best shoegaze releases of the year. The Enters have been cutting their teeth on the stage for several years, so there’s a good explanation for why this EP is so rock solid! Sure, there’s only four songs but it does run close to twenty minutes.

Opening tracks ‘Small Town Love’ and ‘End Of The Summer’ have big melodic hooks backed with a mountain of tremolo riding guitar noise! Either of these could work as a lead single. The longest song on the EP is ‘Sweet Girl‘ and its one of the stand outs. Blending classic shoegaze with progressive rock, it grows and recedes into a wash of acid drones and manic left/right panning. Closing tune ‘Robak’ is a little cheeky, it’s an experimental/drone number that would suit a full length but is perhaps unwarranted on an EP. It’s not a bad bookend but really just works as an outro. Nevertheless, The Enters ‘Small Town Love’ is a must listen for shoegaze fans. Here’s hoping a full length isn’t far off.

The Enters – ‘End Of The Summer’

the enters-small town love-artwork-cover

London shoegazers The Enters have spent the past few years gigging around the UK and Europe, sharing the stage with The Telescopes, Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab), The Fauns and Spotlight Kid. Recently the trio teamed up with producer Rory Attwell to record their latest EP at Lightship95. The studio built on a boat (pics)! The result is ‘Small Town Love’, an impressive collection of dense noise pop (that’s been making the internet rounds this week). A vinyl announcement is expected before too long.
