Westkust has been creating some airy and pop-tinged shoegaze as of late. Westkust officially formed in 2010 and immediately experienced multiple roster changes (new guitarist, new second guitarist, new singer, new songwriters) until late 2011 when the current line up was signed and sealed as Philip Söderlind (drums), Rikard Hjort (guitar / bass), Gustav Andersson (guitar / vocals), Julia Bjernelind (vocals) and Hugo Randulv (bass / guitar).

The young project then released a 12″ Junk EP in the summer of 2012 followed by Summer 3D/Weekends 7″ in 2013. They now anxiously look forward to the release of their proper debut Last Forever, which will be out digitally on June 30 and physically on July 6 via Run for Cover. Pre-order the album here.

Westkust shares two members (Andresson and Randulv) with sister band Makthaverskan. With their previous release of the track “Swirl” a few months ago and now “Dishwasher”, we are patiently awaiting the US album release for this emerging shoegaze band.

You can listen to “Dishwasher” and 20 other great tracks on the May 29th Edition of the Weekend Showcase, a playlist of new songs from around the world. Take a listen!!!
