Tracklist: Under Alien Skies - When She Wears

When we first wrote about the Prestatyn duo last February we expressed surprise more people hadn't picked up on them. Now we're in January 2011, ditto, although they've had plentiful support from BBC Radio Wales nabob Adam Walton and appeared on Drowned In Sound's radar. As much as their surface frame of reference passes through Beach Boys to Owen Pallett to Washed Out to Animal Collective, their invention and knowledge of build and release marks them out as their own people. They've just made available for streaming a new EP, Paste. Three of its five tracks we've written about before in their demo form, all delicious in their delirious wash of harmonies, effects and beats. Of the new ones we've singled out When She Wears for its beatific nature, blissfully hovering above the hazy ground.
