“An exploration of the smudged reds of The Cure, hazy pinks of Chromatics and gluey browns of DIIV.” ~ The Line of Best Fit

“All watery guitar effects and heavenly vocals, those sighing melodies are endlessly intriguing.” ~ Clash Magazine

“As gauzy as it is ‘gazy, Matt Messore’s dream pop project sounds like the Gulf Coast response to SoCal’s Surf Curse and their bedroom pop offshoots.” ~ FLOOD Magazine

They say you can’t go home again, but for Matt Messore it took returning to his hometown of Cassadaga, Florida to discover a new path forward. After traveling across the country and time spent in his former group, Dear Tracks, Messore indulged his DIY bedroom pop leanings working as Cathedral Bells.

The aptly titled “Homebody” served as the project’s first offering introducing a sprawling, whirring world of shoegaze/dream-pop atmospheres extending far beyond its humble origins.

Now, following the release of a debut, self-titled EP at the start of 2019, Cathedral Bells’ first full-length, Velvet Spirit, will see release on vinyl and digitally via Good Eye Records.

The LP is preceded by several singles including “Cemetery Surf” and “A Passing Phase” which drew initial praise from taste-makers including Indie Shuffle who said; “I think Cathedral Bells have struck the perfect balance of throwback synth work, melodic progression and overall shoegazey vibes. The result works in the 80s, the 90s, the naughties and in 2018. And that’s quite good coverage, all things considered.”
