A rather interesting find of late have been The Beauty Contest, an instrumental indie/shoegaze 3-piece from Galway who seemingly formed earlier this year.

They've two demos available to download from a recently created myspace page, simply titled 'Demo 1' and 'Demo 2', with influences credited to Whipping Boy, The Cure, Joy Division, Velvet Underground, The Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine. I'd like to turn your attention to the second of these demos, which has melodies reminiscent of The Cure's Disintegration period, yet once in it's stride is overtaken by fuzzed up shoegaze guitar melodies. It's all quite simple in idea, but works well as a hypnotic blend of sounds, and could be a band worth keeping an eye on for more material now. Read more on Last.fm.
