It has continued over the years as a medium for Perez & company to create unrestricted music.
‘Kids Are Astronauts / Drones’ – Is the first single to be lifted from their forthcoming concept album entitled ‘Islands’. The track is full of shimmering wall after wall emotive shoegaze with impressive hints of reverb laden post rock that will leave you floored. It is simply that stunning! Check it out:
” ISLANDS’ is a concept album. We have worked on a concept which marks the story of a main character from birth to the end of his life. Working music in those terms can be harder but at the same time more rewarding as your figure out mayor turning points in the characters life. We’ve been influenced by so much instrumental and soundtrack music that it only makes sense for us to merge Shoegaze into that to create ISLANDS ”
Keep your eyes & ears peeled for forthcoming releases from this immense musical outfit.
