The History of Apple Pie-Glitch
The UK has been producing quality '90s indie rock for ages now. One listen to the likes of Yuck or PAWS and it's like entering a time of fray vocals and distortion filled guitars. So it should be no surprise that this infatuation should lead to a return of other indie genres. Enter the strangely named The History of Apple Pie and their classic sounding shoegaze. "Glitch" of their upcoming debut Out of View is sounds as if somehow transported itself from 1991. A perfect My Bloody Valentine jangle opens the song with pogo-inducing drums as another guitar cuts in and out with perfectly feedback notes and discordant effect elements. All the while Stephanie Min's lovely & airy vocals envelope "Glitch" to add the perfect touch of beauty to the song's intensity. The History of Apple Pie have crafted excellent, shoegaze bliss, as loud and glowing as anyone could want from the genre.
