"...If you like your music enshrouded in post-punk pretentiousness that sounds as authentic new wave from the 80s as Joy Division ever did, then Shiny Darkly is your answer. At least in Denmark. People rave about iceage and their noisy post-punk expression, but the truly interesting sound is found within the psychedelic realms of "Little Earth", the best release by Shiny Darkly so far. It adds in bits of shoegaze and space rock as well where necessary, resulting in an echoing soundscape with dizzying guitars reverberating near and far the listener at the same time. It sounds super pretentious, but also surprisingly enjoyable in its own right. Most of this is attributable to their vocalist Kristoffer Bech, whose arrogant vocal delivery makes it sound like he doesn't care at all - this meant in a positively charged manner in this context.

For anyone who's seen that movie the connection between Shiny Darkly's sound and the scenes depicted in that movie are obvious, but let's just say there's a whole lot of Joy Division and New Order worship going on here, not to mention the occasional references to The Cure and other influential names of that era..."
