New Video: Boris. Party Boy.

Quintessential Japanese drone/metal/sludge metal/noise rock/psychedelic rock/shoegaze and ambient group, Boris (check out the pics Amber took at their live show last July HERE), has 2011 lined up to be a very interesting and busy year. They have several albums coming out, and in true Boris fashion, none of them can really be pigeon holed by one specific genre (see the handful of genres I tried to use in the first sentence - they essentially all apply). However, the album they are releasing tomorrow on Daymare Recordings, apparently simply entitled New Album, is definitely a departure these guys have not explored yet. Wata, the band's only female member (and, off topic, but she is beautiful as well), sings lead on most of the songs, and the band forays into the realm of absolute dream pop. This is Boris like you have NEVER heard them before. Check out the video below to hear what we're talking about. Very interesting, indeed.


  1. great band but way too prolific. I really hope sooner or later they will release an entire album with the sound of the song Farewell, from Pink. That's pure shoegaze bliss

  2. sam - farewell is absolutely one of my favorite songs of all time. totally epic. but i love that they's interesting everytime. that doesn't mean it works everytime, but it is def interesting every time!

  3. Yes, but it's almost impossible to listen to everything they put out :)
    Hope to see them live, I'm sure a Boris live show is so LOUD ahahah

  4. dude. SO LOUD. i couldn't hear anything til the next day. did you check out the live pics a linked to from the show i caught in july 2010? shoe was as epic as those photos look. amazing.
