Is/Is “This Happening”
Synth fuzzed layered – girl group – noise pop.
“This Happening” is the debut EP from Minneapolis three-piece Is/Is. Four tracks evoke comparisons to Black Tambourine and Mazzy Star as water-tight pop melodies float delicately atop a tumultous sea of fuzzed-out guitar swells and heart-shuddering rhythmic surges. Weave with rainbow ties to your heart, pull it out, and devour in an ecstasy of violence and humanizing passion. Recorded in part by Neil Weir at Old Blackberry Way—also produced, recorded, and mixed by Red Pens’ frontman Howard Hamilton III.
