This past weekend, in an attempt to procrastinate from studying for a final, I checked my Facebook inbox to a lovely surprise: a link to Boardwalk's Facebook page, and a recommendation to listen to their only released track, "I'm To Blame". So, of course, I decided to take five minutes out of my precious review session to listen to it, and was blown away. The group has created a beautiful piece of shoegaze that is capable of stopping anyone in their tracks. Delicate vocals and dominating music are really the key points of this song, easily making it one of my new favorites.
Boardwalk is based out of California, and currently working on their new album, set to be released this summer. If this track is any indicator, the album will definitely be something worth checking out.
