To call Shimmertraps a band would be an understatement. Their music, stunningly colorful, mind-numbingly textured, and blissfully unpredictable, feels more akin to a performance art piece, a full-body deep-dive into an otherworldly atmosphere. While their 2017 debut album Ozius proved their initial skill in fuzzy, introspective lo-fi with hazy, intimate vocals to match, LOOK!, the Washington-based group’s sophomore album, instead shows a distinct and brilliant evolution for the group, every moment bursting with disco-inspired, glitchy multi-dimensional synth pop, radiating with equal parts intrigue and whimsy.
Welcome Shimmertraps to the label!
The Washington-based dream pop band will release their upcoming full-length album in June (SG28).
We started net-label BIRTHDIY in 2018 to continue helping diy artists spread indie lo-fi music. VEDA's debut album "Leave It All Behind" marks the label's first ever cassette release. We decided to hand-press 50 tapes to relive the early days of starting Spirit Goth. VEDA - Leave It All Behind Cassette Tape @BIRTHDIY_
Two singles later & after much anticipation, we release Zeeland's dreamy lo-fi EP 'Vanilla' (SG27), available on limited edition cassette tape. Stream - Bandcamp - Instagram - Cassette
