Part shoegaze, part 90s-alternative and grunge, Uneasy is the debut album and inaugural release from Simi Valley’s Sheer. Formed in the summer of 2014, quickly becoming a staple in the greater LA scene, Sheer channel an earnestness redolent to that of mid-90s emo and indie rock, while primarily occupying a reverb-induced space suggestive of Galaxie 500 and The Jesus And Mary Chain.
While Uneasy introduces the band as one with a kinship for catchy, pop-informed melodies, their focus relies most heavily on building evocative and emotive soundscapes. Uneasy will be released on November 20th on limited edition cassette tapes, and digital download and streaming outlets.
“Uneasy” is a song about crippling social anxiety, but Sheer present it in a way that sounds far from fragile. Their ’90s-infected brand of garage rock is confident and self-assured, regardless of the fact that the chorus of this song rides on overwhelming feelings of ineptness. This is the title track off of Sheer’s forthcoming debut, and the accompanying Colin McCaffrey-directed clip shows the band putting all of their anxieties on display. -- Stereogum
