Witterings from an old indie kid
Russian band Herlights are back with their first release of 2019 with the Sometimes EP. If you have been following the band I guess you will know what to expect but if not their music blends post-punk, dreampop, shoegaze and to a lesser extent post-rock.
The songs feature the now trademark brooding vocals whilst the translucent guitars shimmer brightly as ever. There isn’t much to differentiate each tune but seeing as Herlights rarely deviate away from their self-designed template that doesn’t come as a surprise. Sometimes though, I think it would be nice to break that mould. Until then this steady and consistent EP should fill a space one way or another.
