Alison's Halo

Alison's Halo was a (sadly) short-lived band from the burnings lands of Arizona, USA. It's not easy to find information about them, I've only found they were a four-piece, the singer name is Catherine, they released a compilation of their work thoughout the four years of their existence (Eyedazzler, 1992-1996), some songs were recorded at the garage of a band's member and they are preparing themselves to some reunion shows at 2013. At their bandcamp, there are three new songs (not exactly new, they are from 1996, but remained unreleased till now). Well, about the music itself, it's easy to find many parallels with the more ethereal-side of Shoegaze, much in the vein of Slowdive, and it's mainly characterized by lush and reverberating melodies conducted by sweet airy vocal lines.

Maybe because of the wrong place, wrong time syndrome (they were formed during the Grunge hype, remember), they were completely overlooked, even for the gazers. Fortunately it's being repaired (two decades late, but better than nothing, huh?) and they're receiving some attention and being acclaimed. Slowly and timidly, but it's happening, and that's what matters. And my intention is just giving some fuel to it! ;)
