Meet the artists:
Pam Risourié, a Parisian band, debuted their first album ‘Days of Distortion‘ last March. The album was recorded in the scenic Normandy and boasts an impressive production team: mixed and produced by Lucas Ramos at OneTwoPassIt Studio, known for his work with artists like Guts and Frustration, and mastered by Simon Scott, the acclaimed drummer of the iconic shoegaze band Slowdive.
‘Days of Distortion‘ is akin to an underground odyssey, reminiscent of a dream fragmenting and reverberating through walls of guitar sounds. The album delves into a mental landscape, exploring themes of derealization, hypersensitivity, and love.”
Resplandor, based in the Netherlands, has made a significant mark in the shoegaze music scene. Their latest albums, Pleamar and Tristeza, were crafted with the expertise of Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins) and mastered by Simon Scott (Slowdive).2023 also saw the release of a 15th-anniversary deluxe edition of Pleamar, which includes the original album plus remixes in a double LP format.
The band’s impressive history includes supporting iconic groups like The Cure — most recently in Lima, Peru, on November 22, 2023, as part of The Cure’s South American Tour 2023. Resplandor’s reputation extends beyond supporting The Cure in 2013 and 2023; they have also shared stages with Slowdive, The Jesus & Mary Chain, The House Of Love, and The Radio Dept. Their festival appearances are equally notable, with performances at Grauzone (The Hague, NL), SXSW (Austin, USA), Culture Collide (Los Angeles, USA), and Veltrac Music Festival (Lima, PE), showcasing their global appeal through tours across Europe, North, and South America.
Eosine, a Belgian rock quartet, merges the noisy and ethereal vibes of shoegaze with progressive structures, anchored by harmonious vocals and heartfelt melodies. Their intense, psychedelic performances, which won them the First Prize at Concours Circuit 2022, led to the release of their second EP ‘Coralline‘, mixed and mastered by Mark Gardener of Ride. Capturing the live energy in their evolving recordings, they’ve shared stages with notable bands like The Psychotic Monks, Ditz, Lambrini Girls, and BRNS, leaving a memorable impression at the Left Of The Dial festival in Rotterdam.
WAN masterfully blends lyrics and music, creating a unique and thrilling sound. Their music features an enchanting voice harmonizing with diverse textures, from alternative electronic to dynamic shoegaze riffs. This fusion results in a sound that’s compelling, intense, and raw.
Their upcoming debut LP, produced by Jordan Lawlor (J. Laser, M83), is slated for release at the end of 2023. Meanwhile, their explosive single ‘Run‘ offers a tantalizing preview of what’s to come.
