Blaire - Mimer     Rock, Garage, Psychedelic 03/05/2019
Building a kingdom of textured and multifaceted guitar music Blaire creates sonics that is both visceral and maligned, maximalist and minimal.
Blaire has never sounded so polished and forward. Their pretence of sweltering punk swashed underneath a shoegaze current remains omnipresent, though embeds itself in a dichotomy of deepened pop movements. Using a synth for the first time in a Blaire track, there was a conscious effort to make a dreamy and otherworldly vibe on 'Mimer'.

Retire is a about a couple of things; how overwhelming reality can be, where my mind was at when a series of stupid events left me homeless in London for a night.
