Sydney’s ADORER unleash a debut single packed with shrouded shoegaze sounds

A Sydney-based fourpiece band who have been kicking up the dust for a little while, ADORER have recently shared their titanic debut single, offering a dark shoegaze sound that is perfectly spiked with power and potential. Released ahead of their debut self-titled EP which is due later this year, ‘Unkind’ is an ensnaring introduction that will place ADORER firmly on your musical radar.

Built on sweeping waves of choral vocals and dark, linger guitar tones, ‘Unkind’ builds slowly, revelling in stark atmospherics that then explode into motion. Armed with deep bass notes and driven shoegaze sounds, ADORER make their mark, diving headfirst into lush guitars and pulsing rhythms that collide over captivating vocals and remunerative lyrics.

Effortlessly blurring the lines between traditional shoegaze, grunge, and post-rock, ADORER’s debut single has a hypnotic quality that grabs hold and then never let’s go. Speaking about the single, the band shared, “Unkind is deeply imaginative, documenting the feelings of a day when you have a sense of unease and distaste for everyone and everything around you. One of those days where it feels like the sun hasn’t come up.”

A dark, but brilliant debut that cements ADORER as one of Sydney’s most engaging new bands, ‘Unkind’ is an essential new release for any music fan. Along with the release, ADORER will be playing a special show on the 23rd of February this year, launching the single at Kelly's in Newtown. Tickets are available now on Oztix.
