For those that love the marriage between post-punk and dream-pop, you’ll dig on the aurally pleasing sounds of Brooklyn’s experimental group, SIDEASIDEB. The band led by Matthew Sire (vocals, production) and Christopher Ray Nunez (guitars, bass, arrangements) just released their EP Evergreen Rust this past May and it’s quite the lovely listen. With soothing melodies crossing eerie tones, SIDEASIDEB’s new EP is somewhat of a sullen listen, but absolutely beautiful in its chilling atmospheric sounds. The EP kisses your senses and makes for sensational rainy day music. In the same turn, since it’s so rich in mood, it’s a perfect companion to get sensual between the sheets. Just sayin’ …
While tracks like “The Future” have a heavy post-punk vibe (think Interpol meets Siouxsie) that will get you swaying along to your own Ian Curtis dance moves, songs such as the title-track “Evergreen Rust” have a brooding element that is despairingly beautiful.
SIDEASIDEB bring out the beauty in darkness, whilst having the capability of turning up their shoegaze so you’re not always stuck in a gloomy funk. Their EP features various vocalists including Leslie Hong from Haybaby. Their current lineup consists of Becca Chodorkoff, Matthew Sire, Christopher Ray Nunez, Jacob Simon and Ali Yildiz. Take SIDEASIDEB’s new EP, Evergreen Rust for a spin below.
love the psychedelic sounds!
