Neon Cathedral: Drab

Oklahoma City shoegazers, Neon Cathedral, emerged last year with standalone single, Anniversary, which they recently followed with the four-track EP, Velvet, a dashing set of wistful and vibrant shoegaze which is firmly based on attractive melody and at the same time it carries its fair share of grit. 

Being one of the EP's most densely structured and memorable moments, opener Drab brings to mind the genre's classicism, opposed to the remaining three tracks on which Neon Cathedral's thirst for exploration is more discernible. Giving the impression of a completely unforced, effortless foray, Velvet puts the enigmatic new act on the map as one of the most propitious ones, while the satisfying alt rock soundness of Drab could serve the band as an indicator of what they have to offer at this early stage.

Traces of Slowdive and MBV are decipherable, still, on top of those, Neon Cathedral seem capable of producing something quite fresh and demiurgic.
