Melbourne based shimmering experimental shoegaze/psych outfit 'Wild Meadows' have released a stunning new video to accompany their latest single 'Nowhere'. The single was released back on the 28th of August 2016 and is lifted from their forthcoming full length debut album, penned in for release later this year. The blissed out accompanying video was recorded back in 2015 with AJ Bradford & Thomas Scott Holland.
'Nowhere' jangles on a glorious bed of fantastically addictive golden frequencies, reverberating layered instrumental progressions and effervescent guitar squall. Vocally sublime and reminiscent of many of the very early shoegaze stalwarts, 'Nowhere' is an melancholic slice of modern day, melodious psych-gaze.
