For starters, 10/10 for the name but far from being just a front, Aliendawg. (aka Luiz Spíndola) and Moon Pics (aka Adriano Caiado) have the substance to back up the handle.
The Brazilian duo have joined forces for the release of the excellent two-song split EP, Give In / Paper Heart, out now via Midsummer Madness.With ‘Give In’, a bright, shimmering and melodic tune from the get go, the Brazilian pair proceed to explore the worlds of ‘90s indie rock, shoegaze and dream pop over the course of three-and-a-half minutes bursting with warm, lush melodies. A rich, textured sound, blanketed fuzzy guitars to create spellbinding soundscapes swelling with heart and emotion Layers of guitars, fuzz, distortion and whirring are moulded into something beautiful, lulling you in and transfixing; it is warm, melodic, charming and deeply alluring.
Listen to ‘Give In’ below – it is a gem.
