Texan band Trauma Ray deliver two contrasting variations on the shoegazing theme on their latest single. wmd errs on the side of traditional sounding shoegazing until the noise-rock guitars kick in. Grind features a tasty blend of shoegaze, post-rock, psychedelia and also includes some hardcore punk guitars as the band refuse to be constrained. It’s entertaining stuff whichever way you want to look at it.
wmd/grind is available from Dreamy Life Records.
