Modern day shoegaze always seems to be mixed with other genres, and Brooklyn via Brazil's Shower Curtain are no exception. The only question we have with their latest single is what genre are they mixing it with? "Edgar" has all the drone and feedback needed with shoegaze, but they added a little something to it that we can't quite put our finger on. It has a little bit more of a pop edge to it than we would expect with shoegaze, but it's not really a pop song. The guitar has an unexpected crunch at times, but it's not really a punk or grunge sound with "Edgar." It's almost a modern alt-rock sound, like you'd hear with bands like Wet Leg or Ratboys, but that's still just not right. We'll just have to accept that Shower Curtain are making a new style of shoegaze that we can't easily define, and that's certainly not a bad thing.
