Austin’s She Sir debuted in 2006 with a sound that fit right in with the early ’90s shoegaze lineage. But ever since, the band has been slowly tempering the roaring guitars in favor of quieter textures. It’s no less enveloping, though. “Private Party,” from the group’s new album, is lush and otherworldly, bathed in guitar washes and a bubbly rhythm section. The song perfectly lives up to its title, taking you for a quietly joyous ride.
“Private Party” appears on Rival Island, out now. She Sir plays an album release show tonight at the Mohawk.
