Sad Day For Puppets

Think shoegaze, and it tends to be bands like My Bloody Valentine who spring to mind rather than poppier descendants such as the Boo Radleys and Lush. It's the latter who Sweden's Sad Day For Puppets more closely resemble: sure, they like a bit of guitar noise, but they're far more interested in letting Anna Eklund's vocals hog the limelight. After scoring a few releases on Japanese indie Fastcut Records, the group are finally making their live debut over here this month with a nationwide tour. The first of two Tokyo dates features support from card-carrying shoegazers Lemon's Chair and Shelling, Dinosaur Jr. wannabes Sugardrop and indie-idol DJ dream team Twee Grrrls Club.
