Growing up as a 90s indie kid and being a fan of bands like My Bloody Valentine, Swervedriver, and Slowdive, I was pleasantly surprised to discover a pure 90s shoegaze masterpiece in 2023. The band responsible for this delight is called Scrunchie, and their latest single, Vanish, is a true treat. Collaborating with esteemed mixing engineer Sonny DiPerri, known for his work with My Bloody Valentine and Nine Inch Nails, as well as legendary mastering engineer Stephen Marcussen (The Smashing Pumpkins, The Strokes), the outcome is nothing short of exhilarating: With cascading guitars that swirl in a vibrant tapestry of textures, the music creates an intricate sonic landscape, that envelops the listener with a wall of noise, transporting to a mesmerizing world of sound……A sonic reverie of “Ethereal Haze”.
