The Umbrellas have released a new stand-alone single called "Write It In the Sky."
Following last year's self-titled album, San Francisco's The Umbrellas are back with another glistening track of high quality shoegaze that ups the feedback and fuzzed-out tones for a heavier track that pushes the band towards more exciting territory. Brash guitars give the song a hefty feel full of rough textures and pummeling drums recall pre-Isn't Anything-era My Bloody Valentine that gives it a closer tie to post-punk than the bleary-eyed jangle-pop of their past work. It feels perfectly inline with the vast and pleasurable catalogue of their label, Slumberland, and adds more to the ever-growing shoegaze canon. There are all the quality elements of blissful handclaps, echoing feedback, blistering guitar, and tumbling drum fills that create a blown-out wall of sound true to the aesthetics they clearly admire.
"Write It In the Sky" is out now on Slumberland.
