Riff: My Bloody Valentine – “she found now”

Feb 6, 2013

I wonder how that you find out/You could be the one for me

from She Found Now lyrics by My Bloody Valentine

21 years in the making, the shoegaze kings open their belated return with a typically hazy wall of reverb that could easily have been lifted from Loveless. It may not be the shock to the system of “Only Shallow“, but Shields’ enigmatic mantra of hope indicate that the wait hasn’t been for nothing.
