Italian shoegaze collective Mondaze is set to release its debut full-length later this year. Entitled «Late Bloom», it follows their «Healing Dreams» demo from 2018 and it is said to carry “an unmistakable thrum of desperation to the mid-paced wall of drums and guitar, overwhelming and profound akin to contemporaries like Nothing and Hum,” all the while having moments that still remain faithful to “their punk and hardcore influences.” Two singles from «Late Bloom» have been revealed, the first of which is «Words Undone», with a video by Lorenzo Capacci that you can see below.
The album was recorded and mixed by Enrico Baraldi at Vacuum Studio in Bologna, and mastered by Riccardo Pasini at Studio73 in Ravenna. The second single is «Lost», whose video, filmed by Margherita Mercatali and Matteo Vandelli and edited by Lorenzo Capacci, you can see below.
«Late Bloom» is set for release on December 10 through Church Road, Coypu Records, Quiet Panic, and Through Love on cassette, cd, digital, and vinyl formats. Pre-orders can be found here (cassette and digital) and here (cd, digital, and vinyl).
