Mild Horses – “Suited”

From Mild Horses‘ new album Ignorance To Enlightenment And Back Again, “Suited” captivates with its textured rock pull. Heavy washes of dreamy guitars and a string-laden backing wandering intertwine, reminding of My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive. “You fix me up,” the vocals let out amidst a hypnotic bass line and and lush guitar swells. The track mesmerizes with a hazy rock enjoyment throughout, maintaining a consistent tonal warmness.

The project comes via Matthew Leuw, formerly involved with noise-pop act Crest, Brighton-based art-punk band Coin-op, and lo-fi electro-pop group 2 Hot 2 Sweat. With Mild Horses, Leuw incorporates some aesthetics from previous projects, all while offering something new entirely, evident on “Suited” and through Ignorance To Enlightenment And Back Again.
