CRITIC REVIEWS

Tiny Mix Tapes

All of the hallmarks of the band’s debut remain blissfully intact, and yet they’ve managed to engineer an LP with even more seemingly absurd outliers than minimalism and Radiophonic blips.

80
The Line of Best Fit

Pinkshinyultrablast isn’t so much offering something new to or pushing shoegaze anywhere it hasn’t already been. They are flat out transcending it, offering a sound all their own that is frighteningly powerful and overwhelmingly beautiful.

80
AllMusic

Pinkshinyultrablast don't play by the numbers, and Grandfeathered shows them looking outward while successfully building upon their already impressive sound.

80
Drowned in Sound

Ambitious in the way it redefines traditional song structures while reaffirming Pinkshinyultrablast as their chosen genre's - be it by association or otherwise - most adventurous troupe, Grandfeathered is another distinguished addition to an already impressive body of work.

70
Clash

Brash and bold, its juxtaposition of fragile synth lines and uncompromising slabs of aggression make for a compelling, if not occasionally familiar, listen.

65
Pitchfork

Surely, Grandfeathered is impressive, but the first impression tends to be the only one it makes.

60
DIY

The impressive nature of layers the group create are now familiar, it’s when looking for something emotionally satiable that it concerns.

☆½ ~ Exiguous and quite unsteady listen. Not my thing.

This is the most comprehensive blending of shoegaze and dream pop

Aesthetically you get the point right away. Shoe gazers will like.

At first I was ambivalent towards this record. The instrumentals felt repetitive and the vocals were pretty weird and annoying. BUT, after a while I got into it, I started to pay attention to what Pinkshinyultrablast (yeah, great name...) were trying to make me feel with this. I don't think it's a genius album or something, but they gave some sweet and rock vibes with this dream pop experience.

Fav tracks: I Catch You Napping, Comet Marbles, The Cherry Pit.
Least fav track: Glow Vastly.
