I check out a shoegaze album called Iris by a unknown group also called Iris. My Bloody Valentine seems to be the only model band - or the one that comes to mind when I look for why a contemporary band would currently make this genre -, or a highly respected band, because all the shoegazes band sound just like this one, as if they didn't dare to experiment new sounds.
As the disc title admits, Rocky is testing here. Testing experimental sounds, testing new flows that are greatly appreciated as in A$AP Forever and Purity, and testing people, and that's what an artist should always do. Stagling in the comfort zone is easy to do and on the other hand, difficult to get out. Luckily, Rocky gets both out of the way.
