Pyramids – Sleds

Noise or shoegaze’s glorious redefinition? You decide, but whatever you do don’t give up on ‘Sleds’ too hastily. It is a piece of work whatever your viewpoint and even those completely enamoured by its hazy constructs may require several listens to get to the kernel. To these ears it is a blissful return to the days of yore or that last Belong record if you are younger than I. Pyramids eponymous LP will be with us in a couple of days but for those who can’t wait the whole thing can be streamed straight away. ‘Sleds’ is the perfectly beautiful opening track, industrial frequencies pummel your senses and it’s left to the drifting out of reach vocals to reason with that finger of yours that hovers over the delete button. This may well be impenetrable to most but if you can make it inside the experience may well turn round your day. KD

    great stuff, never heard of them.alsoTHE PYRAMIDS, 2/3s of archie bronson outfit are also well worth a look. Noisy but in a more garage rock way than this lot.

    This is savage stuff altogether. Reminds me of many of the more dreamlike moments from Deerhunter’s cryptograms. My girlfriend Lolo is listening with me. She adores it too.

    demons fly out of the me this last time.freeze me in sorrow. turn my blood into light.a choral of violence. a decending depth.moments on clouds and falling. a raked soul and waiting. so dark. so beautiful.
