TRACK OF THE WEEK: Girl Gaze “Suddenly”

FEATURES|Track of the Week

It’s time to accept this summer’s end with the autumn equinox quickly approaching this Sunday. New Paltz five-piece Girl Gaze, formed out of a childhood friendship between Izzy Deranieri and Michaela Passero in Izzy’s basement during the winter of 2017, captures the seasons’ shift with their first single “Suddenly.” The lengthy piano intro sounds like a less dramatic version of Pink Floyd’s “The Great Gig in the Sky,” but with an equal sentiment of eminent farewells. 1960s girl group-esque vocal harmonies kick in about a quarter of the way through, accompanied by a jazzy arrangement gently hypnotizing us into welcoming fall’s chill waves. The single will appear on the band’s debut, Fade Out, slated for release on cassette October 26th via Team Love Records. Pre-order it on Bandcamp.
