New Jersey/Brooklyn-based Chimes is a psych/slack rock foursome that revel in nothingness. While exploring dream worlds and the cinematic, they wade through pools of post-punk, psychedelia, and shoegaze, allowing rip currents of sonic expression to take them under.
Total Sunflower is one of my favorite songs of the year. It's an electric track charged with a heavy post-punk feel on the guitars and vocals; a pummeling yet gauzy ride through wild guitar bends, pedal scuzz, and nihilistic poetics.
This is a band to keep your ear on in 2015.
