Whimsical: "Rewind" video

Shoegaze duo Whimsical returned to the scene in 2015 after a hiatus that lasted a decade. Their new single Rewind has all the trappings of a 90s indie rock song, with guitarist Neil Burkdool building a complex structure to be scaled by Krissy Vanderwoude's vocals. The tension between music and words works like a charm, with a few carefully place stop-and-starts acting as breathers. The accompanying video follows this game of light and shade closely. It will be included on their new album Melt, due for release on April 1st via Shelflife Records (USA) and Through Love Records (Europe).
