New Shelling: “Shining Pool”

Duo Shelling released a very strong, very dreamy album called Waiting For Mint Shower!! earlier this year on White Paddy Mountain. It got lost in our shuffle for a bit, but the new video for “Shining Pool,” one of the slowly unfolding shoegaze highlights of the album, reminded us to give it a shout out. No shortage of bands cribbing from My Bloody Valentine in Japan today, but Shelling stand out because of how glacial they are willing to get…and how the vocals come through relatively untouched by fuzz, adding a sweet directness to the song. Listen above.
