Static Daydream at From Pop 2 Top

And if you’re interested in getting to know them better, then read on!
After not being in Skywave and Ceremony, did you ever consider stopping making music?
Paul: I considered not releasing any music after each of those groups, but I never imagined not making music. It’s what I enjoy, despite the inspiration coming and going sometimes. That’s okay with me, though. I don’t feel the need to force it, and I’ll never release anything that I don’t really believe is worth releasing.

Pinkshinyultrablast at From Pop 2 Top

Russia’s dream pop/shoegaze band Pinkshinyultrablast have just released their debut album ‘Everything Else Matters’ on Club AC30 and Shelflife and it has already made our Best of 2015 list. ‘Holy Forest’ is the second single to have been released in late 2014 and it is utterly fresh and melodic. The music video for it was influenced by ‘Enter The Dragon’ and ‘Bloodsport’ movies and it is a tribute to martial arts. “The song itself is likely to compare with emotional and spiritual release that comes while having or afterwards combat. Turning the video on remember what Bruce Lee once said ‘Don’t think. Feel’.”
