Shades is a four-piece group out of Idaho who make shoegazing, lush, regressing, expanding, space-filling music. ‘Shades’ is also a great way to describe Clear Motions. It passes through the ears, in one and out the other, like a steam engine. It sounds as if they’ve been chugging coals and spitting out belches of smoke. Their vocal howls exist in one moment and evaporate just as quickly, leaving only the train’s whistle (synths, pulses, bass kicks) trailing behind—it’s moving away to another town (or, set of ears). Don’t worry, you’ll catch the next one passing through, just make sure it’s not Pelham 123…CHECK ME!
