Georgie and Annie Hockeysmith (no relation to me) are two sisters who live in a caravan park in Cornwall and very obviously keep dream-pop close to their hearts. In that sense, the misleadingly titled “Let’s Bang” is pretty close to Cocteau Twins’ more ethereal moments. But it never really explodes and stomps the way that something like “Five Ten Fiftyfold” did. Instead, the song stays distant, using precise columns of ghostly feedback to cut through its pillowy guitar twang. Hockeysmith’s debut single will be out August 12th on Backabelly.
