What is it about shoegaze production that feels like a warm blanket? For me it’s the imperfection of human touch. Though “Dominoes” is a very well-played and thoughtful song, it’s the little bit of fuzz and restraint that really lets you hear the people behind it. It almost asks you to imagine them playing in your living room. The intimacy is symbiotic with the writing, which are shy and anxious, gentle and reserved. It’s a pretty sweet and compelling diorama of how communicating can be hard, how the basic act of conversation can be so vulnerable and unraveling.
