Conduits – Top Of The Hill

Not quite shoegaze (they do mention Slowdive and MBV in their bio so it’s no coincidence) but a direct descendant nonetheless from this Omaha band who are tantalisingly going on tour with Cymbals Eat Guitars. What a contemporary retro feast that is likely to be given their shared love of all things 90’s (something you’ll have gathered that we are also quite partial to as well). For all ‘Top of The Hill’s epic grandeur though it slips by quite quickly, at just under 4 minutes, which is a shame because the twin diametric forces of Jenna Morrison’s glacial vocals and the monstrous chords are irresistible. Has us pining for more but then there is a whole self-titled debut to gorge on. KD
