SRR005 Film School “We Weren’t Here”
Anticipation. Separation. Regret. Revelation. These themes repeatedly emerge from beneath waves of psychedelic dream pop on We Weren’t Here, Film School’s sixth full-length release and first for Sonic Ritual. From the moody sonic crush of “Superperfection” and its icy yet ethereal harmonies with guest vocalist Noël Brydebell of Wild Signals (who appears throughout the album), to the standout track “Isla” with its intertwining guitars and swooning synths, and culminating in the buoyant, nostalgic closer “Take What You Need,” We Weren’t Here bathes the listener in a soundscape of atmosphere and emotion that further cements the group’s position in the shoegaze pantheon.
Coming out September 24, 2021 on both digital/streaming and limited edition 180 gram clear vinyl. Pre-order coming soon.
