The Age of Lovely, Intimate Things

For those who think shoegazing bands are passé, think again. San Francisco Bay Area-based Sciflyer foregoes easy pop hooks and commandeering vocals for a guitar-driven ethereal sound that draws in more sophisticated listeners who like their rock without the schlock. Though the EP contains but five songs, they’re rather lengthy. The album times out at a little more than a half hour.

Sciflyer’s layered guitar sound is hypnotic to say the least. It draws you in with rhythmic musical phrasing; each of these tunes has its own distinct sound: some mellow, some with a bit of an edge, but all equally compelling. The Age of Lovely, Intimate Things is a relaxing, agreeable listen, and music is tight and in-sync—not too much of a surprise considering guitarist Steve Kennedy and bassist Kim Oberly are married to one another.

Favorite Track: Track 3, “The Same Thing Goes for Christmas
