SONG PICK: Cosmic Strip – Sugar Rush
Classic shoegaze is the thing of the London-based band band Cosmic Strip around singer Camella Agabalyan. Thick layers of guitars engulf the vocals and wash over you like the feeling the song wants to describe. Camella explains about “Sugar Rush”:
I wanted to write a song about the feeling of addiction whether it’s sugar, love, a drug, whatever your voice is. I personally really connect to dreamy, druggy songs like Air, My Bloody Valentine, Beach Fossils, Slowdive, The Jesus & The Mary Chain etc so I wanted to inspire myself from that feeling but also show the darker side of addiction that you might not always get from those types of songs.
