House Of Bread: Don’t Be Shy [mp3]

house-of-bread

Superhuman Tomb by House Of Bread will consume you if you let it. And you will be tempted to let it. The album blends two distinct styles of pop, one a haze-filled noise and the other packed with dreamy synths. “Don’t Be Shy” finds a comfortable middle ground, incorporating both by beginning with pleasantly swooning synths before closing out with a masterful noisy guitar.

You’ll find this band doing a lot of that — most songs on the album blend the two styles in some manner. It makes House Of Bread’s music unique, this fuzzy-pop meets electro-pop sound they’ve mastered. And while some songs lean toward the experimental, the solid ones like “Don’t Be Shy” keep Superhuman Tomb grounded in reality, albeit a barely lucid one on the verge of being swept into a mystical dreamland.
