Label: Lacklustre Records
Jackson McCarthy, Kerry Scott-Jackson and Joel Nevile make up the Australian dreamgaze trioÂ Lapse. Â Two years ago, after a 3-track cassette release quickly sold out, their cohesiveness as a band began to mature with a richer lyrical treatment, a wider range of instrumentation and an overall desire to stand out in the vast splintered landscape of the modern shoegaze movement.
Lacklustre Records describes the newly finessed sound of 2017’s True Conditions EP as “20 minutes of warmth…comparable to that of staring up into a meteor shower, perhaps during the peak of the Perseid period.” Twinkling guitar layers bathed in reverb dissolveÂ into the band’s soft vocal harmony, the perfect concoction for a budding new shoegaze band, but their extra instrumentation and unique chord progressions are significant additives to catapult them ahead of their peers. Â I can’t wait to hear the rest!
There are only 100 of these EPs available on black vinyl, 50 online and 50 on the band’s upcoming tour, so don’t wait too long to grab one!
