Sheer out of Simi Valley, CA are premiering a new music video on Noisey. The song is the title track off the band’s forthcoming debut LP, Uneasy.
Lead vocalist Gina tells Noisey the song is “about being around someone (even one you feel the most comfortable around), or being in public and feeling out of place and shameful. You become paranoid and self-conscious about your looks, your body language and general existence and end up being in your own head rather than in the moment. Overall, the song is about a battle with social anxiety that at times seems impossible to overcome.”
“With big fuzzy riffs and the kind of vocals that settle into you like hug, Sheer find empowerment in singing your anxities out loud.”– Noisey
Uneasy will be released on November 20th via The Native Sound, on limited edition cassette tapes, and digital download and streaming outlets.
“Their ’90s-infected brand of garage rock is confident and self-assured, regardless of the fact that the chorus of this song rides on overwhelming feelings of ineptness. This is the title track off of Sheer’s forthcoming debut, and the accompanying Colin McCaffrey-directed clip shows the band putting all of their anxieties on display.”– Stereogum
Pre-orders are available here.
Part shoegaze, part 90s-alternative and grunge, Sheer formed in the summer of 2014, quickly becoming a staple in the greater LA scene,
The band channels an earnestness redolent to that of mid-90s emo and indie rock, while primarily occupying a reverb-induced space suggestive of Galaxie 500 and The Jesus And Mary Chain.
While Uneasy introduces the band as one with a kinship for catchy, pop-informed melodies, their focus relies most heavily on building evocative and emotive soundscapes.
