As many of you know, I was really into shoegaze music in the 90's. Still am, in fact. When Lush started out, they were the epitome of shoegaze. Like, open the dictionary, turn to "shoegaze", and a picture of Lush is right there.
This was one of their first singles - and their first in the US when they finally released all their UK music here. When released, the song was actually a turn towards shoegaze - their earlier music had more of a post-punk feeling - with a lighter sound. In the mix, Miki Berenyi (lead) and Emma Anderson (backing (and songwriter, by the way)) were styled with slightly obscured vocals to invoke a dreamy feel.
