Cover Me…..

Weathering release their new single Chimera next month. Whilst it is not yet available for streaming the flip side, which is a cover of Depeche Mode’s Blue Dress is.

Defender Waves – The Caroline Phase

Defender Waves is the project of the same individual behind Dallas Tears. Whereas the latter has been described as “lo-fi bedroom shoegaze” this EP is pure electronica.
