Ukrainian pop-shoegaze from Mandarinaduck, positively dripping with melodies and guitar haze and energy. Because this is a Box Bedroom Rebels release, naturally the 7” itself is not enough, oh no. You’ll also get a download code (with extra tracks), some confetti and stickers, a lyric sheet, a letter, and a notepad that has been specially scented. Lord!

Mandarinaduck isn't the sort of name that you can imagine being recalled in twenty years time when talking about classic bands from 2016. This Ukrainian outfit however have a very neat line in shoegaze sounds and veritably burst out of the traps with 'Other Suns' which has some rather excellent guitars driving it along 'neath vocals that are as choirboy sweet as the guy from Pale Saints. As I've perhaps mentioned before Box Bedroom Rebels are a label that knows what they are doing so as well as all the limited edition and paraphernalia you get with this you get six songs which is a nice return on a 7" and allows the band to stretch out a bit and try different stuff. 'There's Nothing to Cry About' is softer, reminding me a bit of lost West Coast indie poppers Rocketship and the closing 'Garden Souls' has spangling guitars and pulsing electronics and recalls the time Sarah Records did shoegaze - i.e Secret Shine.
A great package - decent quality shoegaze - what more could you ask for?
