Shoegaze to me has never been a dark genre, but 101a's sound is very ominous and often depressing. The compositions are often very minimalist, yet extremely powerful, providing a sense of disconnection and discomfort, with Noah's vocals being the driving force of this aural abyss. While the lucid vibes of shoegaze may typically serve as a storyline to the pleasures of falling in love, 101a seems to tell of the jealousy and pain of love, the sickness and obsession one can formulate in their mind from such broken hearts. The sound feels very physical to me. Like a wet dream, the sound encompasses a sort of charged sexual energy, flowing through you with a sense of brevity, yet leaving you dazed in a sense of pleasure and confusion.

  1. I love the general layout of this -- you have such a fun blog. I'm gonna lay around here for a while and beef up on my Japanese films, for certain.
