Holy smokes.. I’ve been aware of the Russian St. Petersburg based shoegaze-band Pinkshinyultrablast for a while, but didn’t really listen closely until now. They’ve been collecting some rave reviews for their upcoming debut-album “Everything Else Matters”, and it’s easy to tell why once you tune into their sound. There’s some huge acoustics surrounding the beautiful female vocals and guitars in here. How the delicate cold, clean and open guitar-sounds suddenly bursts into a fuzzy warm breeze of epic wide proportions is simply jawdropping! The drums and bass really pulls it together in the middle, while the synths adds spice (space) to this with the utmost finesse.  Combined with their taste for good melodies, the result is a total MUST if you’re a fan of shoegaze!

Club AC30 (UK) and Shelflife (US) did initially press 600 of the first batch, divided into 300 Starry Sky Vinyl for the UK and 300 Amber Glitter Vinyl for the US. The first UK-version is already sold out, but there’s a second pressing of 300 (150 in the UK, 150 in the USA) on Ultraclear Vinyl with Orange & Black Spots up for grabs from Club AC30 (and soon from Shelflife once the Amber Glitter is gone, won’t take long..)

Second pressing on Ultraclear with Orange & Black Spots available from Club AC30 in the UK HERE



“Pinkshinyultrablast brim with a passion for the exploration of space and weight within their sound whilst retaining an enthusiasm and youth that is a constant, stirring undercurrent.”
The Line of Best Fit


“It’s one of those records that make you want to listen all day long. It’s all there: guitar waves, distant voices, melodies and electrostatic. It’s impossible not to play this on repeat.”
