Add the word "gaze" onto any genre and chances are I'll like it. Dead Leaf Echo are part of the 21st century shoegaze Renaissance, making sure we don't have a lack of good "nu-gaze" (grossest name for a genre ever) to enjoy. The video for "Tears" seems to be a mix of the videos for The Jesus & Mary Chain's "Just Like Honey" and Asobi Seksu's "Me & Mary" with everyone wearing black and white and just kinda standing in a big white room playing their stuff with weird projections. I think it was Michel Gondry that said something about no one is ever original and it only matters what you do with it or some bullshit like that. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
Anyway, "Tears" is from Dead Leaf Echo's new album Pale Fire which is out now and is fantastic. You should get it.
