The Stargazer Lilies
Ambient rock flower power trio from North Eastern Pennsylvania.
Her Vanished Grace
Refining their signature power dream pop, Her Vanished Grace is back with their release SEE THE MOON.
These mosaics of surging atmospheres and ringing melody take you out to stargaze and inward to witness subatomic mysteries. HVG is a vivid, shape-throwing bliss machine.
The beautifully wounded song craft is dressed with luscious bass lines, hazardous drums and sweeping guitars that shine like beacons. Sound hangs like breath in the frosty air. Nance and Charlie's voices trace out luminous octaves and harmonize over big beats and swirling colors that polish these pulsing anthems like waves on the beach.
After the romantic melancholy of their last CD, BLUE, HVG found themselves seeking music with a little more edge but still very atmospheric, with rich chord voicings and the harsh sheen of early 80s production. The lunar imagery stands as a way of interpreting the dissolute yet creative forces that flow around and through all of us.
Taking the glow that simmers beneath the surface of sleep and making real life shine like dreams, on SEE THE MOON, Her Vanished Grace captures the enormous sound of the Earth spinning on its axis.
"This group of New York natives play a prog-rock take on shoegaze, melding complex time-signature shifts with waves of reverb and distortion. While they're definitely devotees of shoegaze legends like My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive, su's songs rise above their influences to become something more relevant in the music landscape. Catch them before they take off."
