Afterbloom for those not in the know are the West Midlands psychedelic/shoegaze/indie rock band taking the area by storm. They’ve had features from flying vinyl, attention from huge names in the industry, an ever-coveted Artist Spotlight feature here on IndieCentralMusic. Now we’ve been absolutely blessed with their brand new single ‘Sticky’.
‘Sticky’ is entirely on brand for Afterbloom and yet something is definitely progressing. It hits out at the classic shoegazey goodness we’ve seen from their prior releases like ‘Duh’ and ‘Second Coming’ however it also drops in a slightly grungy tone mixed with 90s indie vibes. Like throwing My Bloody Valentine, Nirvana, and Weezer into a ring to watch them fight to the death. Except Afterbloom are somehow birthed from the centre.
With a catchy fuzzy guitar and bass to instantly grab you, there is no way you’re going to let ‘Sticky’ be dismissed. I’ve avoided all sort of sticky puns so appreciate that and go check out this masterpiece of a track by one of the most promising bands in the indie scene.
