Coming Up For Air: Shelling’s “Lake To Love”

Wow, two shoegaze-ish tracks in one week, savor this.

What makes Shelling’s “Lake To Love” stand out is that it isn’t striving to sound pretty. Though, it does have moments of beauty – the female vocals, mainly, graze over this song just right, left untouched for the most part to add a touch of loveliness to what is a loud, guitar-driven song. Shelling don’t aim on writing a fuzzed-out pop song or anything else – they let the feedback drone out, so that the lithe singing is in conflict with the noise beneath, creating a great conflict that becomes more and more captivating with each listen.
