Review / Jul 20, 2017
Italian alternative rock/shoegaze band Clustersun rose in 2013 with a self-produced single and was quickly snapped up by Italian label Seahorse Recordings. Debut album Out Of Your Ego arrived in 2013 and set the wall-of-sound tone of the coldwave, psychedelic, and dreamy music that followed. Clustersun has now delivered its 2nd album, the more dynamic and massive Surfacing To Breathe, also via Seahorse Recordings to great critical and fan acclaim.
