A night of shoegaze and dream pop with Spotlight Kid (featuring Chris Davis, ex Six By Seven) + Mint Ive + autorotation + The Microdance
Thursday 30th July
Peace In The City presents a night of ethereal sounds, shoegaze and dreampop wonderment. First 25 in get free autorotation CD.
Beautiful epic music that fills your soul with fire, shifting through the hazy drone rock of Spacemen 3 and the velvets through to the uplifting beauty of Lush, MBV and Swervedriver, cutting a glance in the right direction to the great moments of shoegaze, krautrock and 90s psychedelia.
Along with the likes of Exit Calm, Model Morning and Nova Saints, Mint Ive are taking the hallowed sounds of early 90s shoegazing to a new audience reared on grit-clenched songwriting and a passion for affluent characters amidst the current trend for faceless artists within the music industry.
"...not only does this thoroughly impress it promises more wonders for the future. Breathtaking stuff..." - Andrew Venning – CSR FM
Stripped down version of this new London/LA band. A different, less heavy, more melodic, more kooky and more girl-centric take on the MD's alternative/shoegaze stylings. Super-emotive, nuanced songs crammed with pop hooks and unexpected turns...
