Shimura Curves

Well, Knock Me Down With A Feather!

I never thought in a million years that Drowned In Sound would say nice things about us. And yet... they do!

On first impressions, Shimura Curves look like The Pipettes' older and infinitely wiser sisters, yet musically they couldn't be any further apart if they tried. 'Stronger', their side of this seven-inch single, is by far the stronger of the two tracks on offer. Sounding like outcasts from the Creation school of stargazing (notice we didn't mention anything to with looking at one's feet), Shimura Curves recall the blissful Scar era of Lush alongside more palatable, hazy effects-laden harmonisers such as Spirea X or Sambassadeur, and on this evidence are definitely worth keeping an out for.

Spirea X!!!! Lush!!!! I mean... SPIREA X!!!!!

(Yeah, I know I said I wasn't reading our press any more. But I just found that while browsing DiS for giggles.)
