Prepare My Glider – Smokesong

Canadian Shoegazers Prepare My Glider announced they have a long-player in the offering. Smokesong is the first track to lifted from the as-yet-untitled album and given the references to Ride, My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive on the Bandcamp page you may have some expectations on how this track sounds. However, rather than being a fully-fledged shoegazing track, Smokesong heads back to the earlier times of ethereal wave namely 4AD artists like The Cocteau Twins. It’s a wonderfully executed mixing reverb-laden guitars, otherworldly vocals and subtle, ambient passages. It’s backed with a demo of No Early Warning which dives deep into those previously mentioned influences.
