The track immediately establishes the outfit’s off-kilter charm.

On their hypnotic debut single ‘Wedding Season’, Side Bangs¬†aim to transfix you with a gorgeously sultry, shoegazy soundscape that was inspired by people walking down the aisle on the titular big day.

The track has this kind of underlying darkness to it that underpins proceedings throughout, with an increasingly foreboding sense of tension that creates an palpable atmosphere as the track drags towards its rewarding and explosive conclusion. The track is a wonderful debut release that highlights the quirks and weirdness of Side Bangs, while establishing an alluring, shoegaze appeal if they opt to steer things in that direction. A multi-faceted triumph.
