The shoegaze descriptor and sound never fails to capture my attention. It's the skeleton key, or the secret handshake into my heart and mind, and has been for a good many years. Toss in some dreamy vocals and you can count me pushed over. And that's exactly how Houston, Texas shoegazers Since Always introduced themselves to me. It wasn't exactly quite like that, it was through an email submission from lead vocalist and guitarist Laila Mendoza. She was emailing to announce the band's latest effort, a full length titled Consequences. After a few times through the album, I've become particularly enamored with their track 'Dark of the Room', and I want to share it with you. Join me for a listen, stream it below.
