Cathedral Bells“Ethereal Shadow” is a track from a 5 song EP from Florida based shoegaze duo Cathedral Bells.

Cathedral Bells are Matthew Messore & David Carey. The shoegaze element is clear from the chorus and flanger guitar effects and reverb washed vocals, but it is cut through with a vein of high quality synth-pop, meaning there’s way more going on in the songs on the EP giving it a much broader pop appeal.

That synth-pop element evokes the spirit of UK bands like Frazier Chorus and China Crisis and the pop hooks in the songs and arrangements pack some of the clever touches of The Lightning Seeds.  That all adds up to something worth exploring, and if you’re really keen there’s a cassette release available form Good Eye Records.
