  • Print

Portland (USA) based electronic shoegaze trio Vibrissae announced a release of their debut album entitled Somewhere Away. Album is set to be released via Italian label Vipchoyo Sound Factory on 19th August. Vibrissae's debut output is the result of over three years of rehearsal and recording. Their music crosses over multiple genres, combining and alternating elements from electronic rock, synth pop, dark wave and shoegaze. The first single "Need" is an electrifying post-punk number with a darker atmosphere, underlined by a frenzied feeling of urgency. Guitar distortion erupts at the start of the track, transitioning into a warped guitar chime with remarkable percussion penetrating in the calm before the storm. Lingard delivers a stunning sing-talk, building up to what is a hypnotic chorus.
Somewhere Away was mainly recorded at their home studio with some vocals tracked at Jackpot! Recording Studio in Portland, a testament to Vibrissae's DIY aesthetic. The band also mixed their own tracks and created their own artwork, with mastering performed by Alan Douches. Vibrissae line-up consists of vocalist Imber Lingard who comes from Australia, Emma Bell was born in Malaysia, and Aaron Bell is native to the USA.
