Recorded solely in Auckland based, singer-songwriter Liam Atkin’s bedroom, this track’s sound is sheer power, with hints of noise rock and psychedelic punk being the icing on top of this songs strong base. The gorgeously fuzzy guitars and swelling reverbs are reminiscent of My Bloody Valentines enchanting sonic landscapes and the strong lyricism and passion evoke a nostalgia similar to Deftones but Venus In Spirals have defined their own sound with captivating melodies and emotive performances.
