I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Italian duo Schonwald own at least three records: The Cure’s Pornography, Cocteau Twins’ Head Over HeelsÂ and My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless. Â Melding eery synths, a pounding, reverberating rhythm section and layers ofÂ majestic guitar exaltation, they’ve created a wave of gothgaze both haunting and soothing.
Alessandra Gismondi’s vocals just dissipate into their dense fog of sound, a remarkable feat for aÂ mere duo. Â Similar to their previous two albums, you’ll feel like you’re floating in the clouds one moment and then tied to a sinking anchor the next. Â It’s an exhilarating ride, and a must listen for any fans of the genre. Â You can listen to the full album HERE, and be sure to check out their previous two full-lengths. Â Just as good!
