Introducing: Blonde Tongues - Wedding Bells
Add Brisbane's Blonde Tongues to the ever growing list of impressive Aussie shoegaze bands.
Brisbane four-piece Blonde Tongues sound like they're onto something with debut "Wedding Bells". The immensely resonating track has a slight hint of dissociative identity disorder, feeling like they're fighting a battle to stay uplifting jangle-pop, shrouded in reverb, but their seriously shoegaze vocals tell a tale of a different beast - something that can't quite break free. You can feel an undertone in their music too and it's trying hard to take a peak beyond their anthemic dream-pop - maybe it's punk, maybe it's grunge, who knows, but I'm confident the band have more up their sleeve.
You can buy a copy of "Wedding Bells", which comes with other track "Kisses" over at Blonde Tongues' bandcamp page - if you're tight you can get it for free.
