Chinese dream pop / shoegaze quartet Endless White (白百) are back with long-awaited debut album “Flow West to You”.
Named after the novel “Asleep” by Japanese author Yoshimoto Banana, Xi’an shoegaze outfit Endless White’s debut album plays with the idea of lonely souls bewitched by spiritual sleep.
An apt metaphor for depression, Endless White’s music, led by the wispy vocals of singer Zhang Wanyi, feels in many ways like an inescapable daydream – one that’s full of jangly guitar work and sublime walls of sound that engulfs you.
Nevertheless, the quartet manages to inject rays of light as the album unfolds, with the band particularly brimming with life by the closing track “Hit By Me” which stings oh so good.
Stream “Flow West to You” on Bandcamp and Spotify.
