We are thrilled to introduce you to the newest video from Canadian shoegaze/nu-psych outfit, Slow Down Molasses. The visuals to their storming new single, ‘Moon Queen’ can be viewed exclusively on Gigwise below.
Their guitars develop an atmospheric wall of sound afflicted with paranoia that nods to My Bloody Valentine. Meanwhile, the tastefully reverb-caked vocals resemble The Horrors, and the visceral drums drive items along with a lethal quantity of challenging-hitting punk rock energy.

And although they are a single of the smaller bands on the bill, do not beneath estimate their prospective reside – they must be on your should-see list if you’re heading down.
