Beauty Lies in the Eye with Witness 9 - An Interview

Em final de janeiro veio ao mundo o single de estreia totalmente DIY dos estadunidenses do Witness 9.

De cara virou predileto do TBTCI, shoegazer climático quase kraut, muito longe das viagens etéreas e e pouco momentos ficando mais estridente, o Witness 9 cadencia suas viagens deixando-as densas e envolventes.

Se faz necessário mais material dos caras imediatamente.
