Formed in Cardiff in 2017, Perfect Body take their cue from the sonic experimentation of bands like My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
Having established a name for themselves locally, the Welsh five-piece have joined up with the much renowned Bubblewrap Collective to release a split EP along with Zac White. Perfect Body’s inclusion is ‘Fields’; a dreamy, glacial shoegazy effort that rustles with the ghosts of their aforementioned influences and woozy 60s psych. ‘Fields’ is characterised by managing to be a number of things simultaneously; it’s noisy, psychedelic guitar is both that and elegant. It is ethereal yet muscular and amid the icy, crisp glacial tones there is warmth from the slowburing guitars and wall of sound. Combining to create a wall of noise, it is funnelled through a hazing mix of fuzz and distortion which doesn’t obscure the delightful pop core, and allure of the single.
