This is part 2 of the blog serie about REVOLUTION - The Shoegaze Revival. Check out this 3 awesome bands. Rev Rev Rev and Stella Diana from Italy and all-girl-band Spool from Japan.
I hope you enjoy their music and get to know them a little bit better.
I'm very excited to be part of the whole promoting process among other awesome blog, radio stations and wonderful people, such as The Record Stache or The Primal Music Blog and DKFM Shoegaze Radio, trying to make this as big as it can be. Because Shoegaze is back (even though it never left) and we are loud!
Hailing from Modena, Italy, Rev Rev Rev’s sound is influenced by first-wave shoegaze, as well as psychedelic rock, re-metabolizing these elements into a loud, woozy, fuzz-driven context. Their live sets comprise kaleidoscopic video projections waving with music, and the use of self-constructed stomp boxes, producing weird sounds.
The band formed in the summer of 2011. The release of their debut EP "Hypnagogic Visions" the following year quickly caught the attention of independent webzines and radio stations across Italy.
Stella Diana was formed in Naples in 1998. They are one of the few bands in Italy offering a blend of shoegaze with new wave and post-punk. They have firmly found their sound somewhere between Ride, Joy Division, My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive and The Chameleons...
After releasing ‘Supporto Colore’ (2007) and ‘Gemini’ (2011), which were well received by music critics, they toured around Italy several times and also abroad. In 2014, they released the LP ‘41. 61. 93’, representing a perfect synthesis of distorted guitars and dilated sounds.
4. SPOOL (Japan)
Spool is a Japanese shoegaze girls band, formed in 2011 in Saitama Tokyo, Japan. Bands they admire include Spitz (Japan), My Bloody Valentine, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, The Deer Hunter, Washed Out, and M83.
