Northern California’s Whirr (formerly Whirl) make an effects-laden noise that is as blatantly loud and heavy as it is beautiful, giving the sounds of 90′s shoegaze a widescreen update for the post-millennial era. The young sextet’s wall of lush guitars, breathy vocals, dreamy synth and thunderous drumming propel listeners into a near-cinematic realm where instantly catchy melodies and emotional, enveloping atmospheres hang in perfect balance. The group’s debut album, Pipe Dreams, was released by Tee Pee Records this past March.
