Back in January of 2018, Bleary released a batch of demo’s that was a highly enjoyable blend of shoegaze and dream pop. Now the band has released “Ghosts” and announced the official follow-up to those demos in the form of Gates, a full-fledged EP due out on Cold Lunch Recordings on April 4th.
Based on this single, it seems that the vibe from the demos hasn’t been lost in the slightes. The band has refined their recording techniques to further emphasize all the right parts. The guitar tone is uniquely Bleary and fits perfectly with singer Callan Dwan’s emotive hooks; a blend of introspective melancholy and tender storyteller. That vulnerability paired with the explosive chorus is a formula for a worthy place in your heavy rotation.
