Listen: Whirr’s thunderous new song “Heavy”

on July 31, 2014, 3:15pm

When he’s not playing in noise rock group Nothing, former Deafheaven member Nick Bassett likes to churn out fuzz-soaked shoegaze in the band Whirr. Case in point: “Heavy”, the latest song off Whirr’s forthcoming album, Sway.

Thick, thunderous, and sizzling with reverb, the track sounds like an amalgamation of the aforementioned bands with some My Bloody Valentine gloom thrown in for good measure. Listen in below (via SPIN).

Sway arrives on September 23rd via Graveface Records. For more sounds, check out “Mumble”.

Whirr are set to kick off an extensive U.S. tour next month. Consult their full itinerary.
