The Virgance – Hiko Shrine

virganceGet this down you! In a world where everyone is starting to have to tread lightly in fear of causing any upset, it’s good to know that there are people still out there are breaking the mould and absolutely smashing out music like the stuff you’ll hear on this album from The Virgance which is released as a free download today.

With that masterful shoegaze aesthetic that’s always brought me a sense of joy and fulfilment, the instrumental force behind every last track on this album makes for very enjoyable listening indeed. There’s plenty of full throttle guitars on offer and the effects that provide such a hazy, disorientating sound are exquisite from start to finish. It may be hard to drag certain listeners in without the addition of a vocal line running throughout but if you’re into that wonderful shoegaze sound then there’s no doubting that this release will be right up your alley. It’s incredibly easy to find yourself becoming overwhelmed by these epic aural tapestries as they flood your ears with a wide array of sounds, spreading confusion and panic amongst those who may be unaware of exactly how marvellously intense the music that they’re listening to is.

Go grab yourself a cup of tea or coffee and take the time to get lost in these mind-bending sounds from The Virgance, it’ll be the best thing you do all day.
