The problem that I have with a lot of modern shoegaze is, that it is fine being dreamy and ‘soundscape-y’ but when there’s no melody or the vocals consist of barely audible echoes, I switch off. Thankfully Torandaga are much better than this.
‘After Life’ combines shoegaze elements where the vocals are concerned but adds depth, a carefully constructed song with a beguiling melody. Thumbs up!
