Brooklyn shoegazers Suā play Glasslands on 08.25

With the recent release of their latest EP "Twins," New York City’s Sua adds fresh ideas to the dreamgaze sound while never straying too far from that genre’s ultimate appeal. The title track (streaming) comes initially powered by bended guitars over fluid drumming, while female lead vocals occupy a tonal quality and presentation that lands somewhere between The Cocteau Twins and Asobi Seksu. At nearly 6 minutes in length, there’s more than enough room for multiple soft vocal passages, forceful guitar explosions, a uniquely placed minor chord as well as a stereo field panning psyched-out coda. “All You Have” shuffles along a brightly percussive pattern as multiple layers of guitars create alternately pitched sonic walls around Suki Kwan's seductively sweet vocals. “Beach 90” celebrates those “summer days in the rockaways” with light near-jazzy vocals, while guitars played by overt disciples of Kevin Shields deliver alternately measured skewer and punch. “Welcome” juxtaposes casual, airy vocals against a busy rhythm section and angular time changes for an auspicious result. Check them out live on August 25 at Glasslands. - Dave Cromwell
