Fleshwater – “We’re Not Here To Be Loved” LP

The nine song full-length debut by this Massachusetts band that bring a wide range of styles together – alternative, shoegaze, electronic, post-hardcore, and off-kilter pop. A striking contrast of intimate male-female harmonies with an overpowering wash of loud, hazy distortion, “The band mine a kaleidoscope of influences, ranging from Hum, Deftones, Sunny Day Real Estate, and Far to Bj√∂rk.”… Ultimately arriving at an ethereal style that sits alongside Cloakroom and Nothing in the shoegaze stakes, albeit with a harder (hardcore) kick and a heavier thump. While it’s the soaring vocals of Marisa Shirar that sits down at the head of the family table, a talent to listen out for.
Self-produced/recorded, with the help Kurt Ballou of Converge.

Released at the tail-end of 2022 and already in it’s fourth press.
