Witterings from an old indie kid
I am still unsure what the band’s name in English. Is it still On the Crest of a Wave or now as Google is suggesting Point Break? To be honest I don’t care because what I do know is that this is another fine EP full of well crafted indiepop songs.
It’s the lovely female ethereal vocals (think Flowers Rachel Kenedy) that are going to hit home first before the guitars and percussion grab your attention. The music varies from the classic 1980’s indie pop sound (‘Нет продолжения’) to 1960’s surf music (‘Воробьевы горы’) whilst it’s the title track, which translates as Clouds, that is the standout track here. It’s a lovely tune which is going to be a permanent fixture on my playlists. Grab it from here.
