Venera 4 - Deaf Hearts EP [12"]

As i've mentioned a few weeks ago when i wrote about their Seabed Terror single, i only learned about VENERA 4 earlier this year. A great band from Paris with a sound that's rooted in the early nineties. I wrote that Curve was one of the bands that came to mind when i heard their song Sun, and with Home on this DEAF HEARTS EP that's the case once again. It's the howling guitars that are causing this, i'm sure. Deaf Heartbeats vaguely reminds me of the band Crocodiles, and just like on the 7", it's the B-side here that has the best song on it. Haunted Summer is a brilliant slow-paced tune that preferably should be listened to at high volume to hear its full magnificence. Definitely one of the best shoegaze songs of the past years, as far as i'm concerned. The EP is limited to 300 copies, hand-numbered on a paper insert.
