Heliotropes is the musical vehicle of four Brooklyn women that hail from places as wildly divergent as West Virginia, New Jersey, and California. Begun in 2009, the band has been hard at work recording and releasing singles that showcase their fuzzed-out psych/shoegaze-inspired songs, full of dreamlike vocals and gut-pummeling riffs. Heliotropes land somewhere between Black Sabbath and Mazzy Star, which makes for a pretty perfect cocktail of musical intoxication.
Featured song: “Ribbons”
Heliotropes’ “I Walked With A Zombie” single is available digitally, with vinyl coming in December from Manimal Vinyl.
