Aerofall is a shoegaze four-piece band from Rostov-on-Don, Russia. I had never heard of them until I stumbled upon this new album the other day. It turns out that they started in 2004 as a techno band, and sort of did that for a while. They blew that up and started playing guitars in 2006. I have no idea how many records they’ve put out, but there are a couple of releases from 2011, and this self-titled record came out in April of 2014 via Hands and Moment.
On some songs, singer Yana Komeshko sounds a bit like Miki Berenyi from Lush. That’s not the case with this song. She’s got her own wonderful thing going on here. In general, though, this song reminds me quite a lot o Drop Nineteens.
“Alien Dance” by Aerofall
I love the multi-layered wall of guitar noise. I love Komeshko’s warm vocals. I love the fuzz. I love the sheer volume of it. I love the static at the end. It’s the whole dame thing that I love.
