Gothic base lines paired with fuzzy guitars and deep but lush vocals is the best short form description for the sound that is A Grave With No Name. Based out of London, A Grave With No Name is essentially guitarist Alex Shields and features a revolving door of contributors. For their third album, Whirlpool, released just this past week, vocal duties are handled by Alanna McArdle from Ides, with percussion by Comanechi drummer Akiko Matsuura.
Aurora is a simple yet graceful track that is just the tip of the band’s sound on this album. Evidentially, Shields recorded the first two albums in his bedroom, so the studio sound for this disc is a first. Check it out, it’s moody on the shoegazer tip.
