figure eight: altar

figure eight is an emerging noise pop group which was recently formed. After much anticipation, the Oakland-based act released their first single, altar. Although they have several self-produced demos and tapes circulating, this particular track is the only one they attempted to record professionally.

altar exudes an intriguing blend of shoegaze and indie pop energy, carrying a poignant sense of longing. The song is characterized by its distortion, brooding dynamics, and melancholic atmosphere. Singer Abby's stunning soft vocals and guitarist Nash's graceful guitar work seamlessly intertwine, creating an amazing track which embodies both contemporary and traditional elements of shoegaze and slowcore. altar mirrors the pioneering spirit of genre stalwarts like Starflyer 59 and Cocteau Twins, while also lifting inspiration from more recent greats such as Whirr and Ringo Deathstarr.

altar is out through Cherub Dream Records
