<strong>Curve - pursuing that seminal mixture of shoegaze and electronica.</strong>

Views:

Sadly, another band making much further inroads overseas than in the States. Curve were a UK duo that managed to capture the perfect combination of Shoegaze and Electronica and turn it into an influential form that has been expanded on and refined over the years. But Curve were at the ground floor and in 1991 it was uncharted territory.

Unfortunately the band went through a few breakups and withdrawals in the 90's, before putting it on its first major hiatus in 1994. A brief regrouping in 1998 yielded an internet-only album and then a final breakup for good in 2005.

Tonight's track comes from an ep issued in 1991. Frozen is the title track off the ep and its typical of the strong direction they were pursuing around this time. To say they were underrated and under-appreciated at the time would be a mild statement. That they are being rediscovered and re-examined now is a good sign. Better late than never, as they say.
