A compelling abrasive shoegaze band, dealing with the aesthetics of contrasting sounds.

Heavy like a gloomy dream yet soothingly vibrant.

The vulnerable soft floating voice of Manchester's Isa Holliday underneath layers of grungy shoegaze soaked noisepop, seeking shelter from a f'ed up world.

Slow Crush are bridging boundaries with their own distinct sound between Shoegaze, Postrock, indierock, Heavypop, Nugaze, Postpunk, Grunge.

Emerging like an ornate relic, Austin-based power trio Grivo combine slow, methodical hooks and warm tube amplifiers to artfully re-establish the link between heavy guitars and downtempo pop. Grivo’s massive tones and effects are utilized as active compositional elements, brilliantly crafting and pacing their infectious riffs to allow the saturated guitars and bruising low-end to fully bloom. Within the tidal sound waves and bleak timbre, Grivo forges a distinctive personal connection that challenges the modern definitions of occult rock and shoegaze.
