Lovingly dubbed ‘anxious rock performed by day dreamers’, Wine Pride layers percussive and ethereal loops, with introspective themes amidst an arena of enchanting effects and a dreamlike overlay of reverb. Inspired by bands like: The Cure, Beach Fossils, Bdrmm and New Order, Wine Pride offer a nostalgic and dreamy gateway into the recent past. Everything from the name to the music and visuals reinforces a sense of intoxicating delicacy and emotional depth. The aim of the project was to create an atmosphere that elicits moments of self-reflection and escapism by interlacing otherwise contrasting themes of melancholy and bliss. Combining ethereal tones of dream pop and shoegaze with a driving post-punk edge, Wine Pride create phasing instruments that fill the space and become more than the sum of their parts. Sharp basslines create a sense of urgency that is weighed down by a blanket of enveloping effects and reverberating echoic guitars.
