The subgenre known as “shoegaze” has always been interesting to me. Right from how the genre’s name is derived — which is because members of shoegaze bands often play their instruments apathetically, seemingly “staring at their shoes” — this type of music has always created a curiosity in me. The clip for New York band Ducktails’ single ‘Letter Of Intent’ captures the mood of shoegaze pop impeccably. As band members perform the track with no visible emotion, save for a select few scenes, I couldn’t help but watch the clip from start to end in awe. A sort of entrancement , really.
