Fire Like This by Blood Red Shoes (2010)
For fans of: The Joy Formidable, Nico Vega, The White Stipes, Nirvana, The Pixies
Genres: Garage Rock, Shoegaze, Indie
This British duo plays a style that sounds nostalgic of 90's shoegaze and grunge but introduces a new touch without feeling forced or out of place. For just guitar, vocals and drums, there is no lack of energy or complexity; the magic is in the arrangements. Dynamically this is a very strong album and offers more and more surprises with repeat listens.
