#17 brighter – noah’s ark

my first taste of shoegaze/dreampop and all things in between were from the mixtapes stella (wherever you are) made for me. the first band to appear in one of those (yes, cassette) tapes was brighter, the short-lived darlings of the legendary and equally fleeting sarah records. “noah’s ark”, the second 7″ ep they released on the label in 1990, is a bittersweet affair with the opening twee-tinged strummings preparing the way for keris howard’s wistful vocals, which in turn gets washed over in a sea of swirling colors. now reissued with the other brighter singles on matinée recordings, this song is a perfect lazy afternoon companion to all daydream believers like myself.
