As stereotypical visions of people and places go, the good folks of Doncaster aren't exactly at the top of the list when thoughts turn to embracing new, experimental music. Indeed, having spent the occasional stag night in DN1 and its dens of iniquity also known as night clubs, the nearest anyone in the town could expect to encounter new music would be only be at the weekly 30 minute new music show on the towns local radio station.
Thank heavens for small mercies then, as 93MillionMilesFromTheSun not only manage to dampen stereotypes. they simply obliterate them.
Doncaster's 93MillionMilesFromTheSun, who are Nick Noble (Vocals / Effects / Guitars), Kenno (Bass Guitar) and Jase Burns (Drums / Loops / Effects / Samples) have been responsible for some of the most effervescent sounds of recent years. While 2008's self-titled debut album undoubtedly lit the touch paper, each subsequent release has not only re-affirmed their status as one of the leading lights among the UK shoegaze scene, but also heralded a stark progression sonically from each of its predecessors in the process.
Comparisons to My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive are inevitable, and on the tube screaming ‘Sonic Assault' and cavernous ‘Without You Near' are more than justified. However, what sets 93MillionMilesFromTheSun apart from many of their contemporaries merely content with rehashing the past is their deliberate penchant to push new boundaries.
Combining layered, textured guitars over an array of effects and choral vocals. Another key element of 93MillionMilesFromTheSun's extensive make-up is that not only do they express a desire to take their sonic experimentation one step further, but they also never lose sight of the fact that beneath all the reverb and delay lay actual songs that would sound just as affecting stripped down.
