Perfect pop: it's a misty business....with the strength of fourteen ordinary pop bands, Gaze have carved bone and stone to a gossamer glaze. Listening to their debut album Mitsumeru is a constant cycle of play-pause-repeat. They pulsate and magnify, rushing your head with what crawls through your dreams. This album breathes, it lives. Miko Hoffman and Megan Mallet are the main thrusters; voices from deep space, vacuum fresh, willing to warm you content like a devil in footy p.j's and/or rock you like a sugarcane. Rose Softies Melberg handles the rattle and crash. Mesmerizing charm that never fails to connect.
Gaze: Shake the Pounce
Gaze are the new wonder in pop. Hailing from the north, Vancouver, B.C., where most music is made in the garage, Gaze are more attic-style, souvenirs and memories held up to a different light. Here's a whole new album's worth fourteen songs of the kinda sadness/gladness Gaze set to motion. Miko Hoffman, Megan Mallett, and Rose Melberg bend deep powder borne songs into harmony and humming form. Short bursts or super furry, quite contrary, voice, guitar, bass, drums.
