Clustersun - "Raw Nerve"

Hailing from Sicily, Clustersun are set to release their sophomore album next month. "Raw Nerve," the first single from Surfacing to Breath, is heavily influenced by classic shoegaze bands like Ride and The Jesus and Mary Chain. But it's not quite shoegaze, no matter how swirly the guitars might be. There's a classic rock psychedelia throughout the song, and it's a bit too heavy to be pure shoegaze. Plus, the band adds this epic, kinda glammed out element, like a Placebo song. And then the second half just devolves into this insane Sonic Youth style breakdown with the musicians going in their own directions, but somehow all staying together. 

You can watch the video for "Raw Nerve" below. The latest album from Clustersun, Surfacing to Breath, will be out May 19 on Seahorse Recordings. For more on Clustersun, check them out on Bandcamp and Facebook.
