Bedroom Eyes - "Lorraine"

Boston's Bedroom Eyes (not to be confused with the Swedish act of the same name) may just reinvent shoegaze. Next week they will release Honeysuckle, their sophomore album. The first song on the album, "Lorraine," has the swirling guitars and fuzz usually associated with shoegaze, but it's aggressive in a really fun way that the genre usually doesn't have. They call it "sneakergaze," which basically does my job for me. It's like the swirl of My Bloody Valentine mixed with the noise and aggression of early 90s Sonic Youth and then some pop punk added into the mix. It's trippy as hell music you can pogo to, if you weren't pushing 40. 

Honeysuckle will be released on November 24 on Midnight Werewolf Records. You can pre-order it on Bandcamp. Be sure to check out their Facebook for more info.
