By the time Chapterhouse released their second and final album Blood Music in 1993, the band was drifting ever further away from their defining shoegazing moments, towards a clean-sounding almost electro-dance style.

Back in 1991, however, with the release of Pearl, they established themselves, after a lengthy pre-release period of writing and rehearsing, as instant champions of a rare beast in the shoegazing cosmos: while not exactly an indie dancefloor filler, you have to admit that Pearl has an unusually decent shuffle about it.

Elsewhere, plenty of ‘gaze boxes are ticked, with semi-distinct vocals and luscious backing vocals playing off against shimmering guitars.
