Sunday Shoegazer: Center of the Sun’s “Cease”

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

We last featured Center of the Sun for their cover of Slowdive’s “Machine Gun”, but their only album, Machine Gun (which, ironically, doesn’t contain the Slowdive cover) is well worth picking up, and “Cease” is off that.

Influences seem to be Jesus and Mary Chain, Sigur Ros, and maybe just a tiny hint of Laibach.
