Album Review: I Don't Know by bdrmm

Exceptionally Good, Based on 2 Critics

Under The Radar - 85
Based on rating 8.5/10

On the first trip through bdrmm's sophomore album I Don't Know, fans will notice the dramatic immediacy of 2020's debut album Bedroom is missing. Released at the peak of the modern world's largest health scare, Bedroom was the perfect antidote to the lockdowns with its shadowy atmospherics, taut, polyrhythmic beats, smoldering guitars, and just the right amount of The Cure's tuneful hopefulness. But after a few more spins, I Don't Know reveals the band has traded The Cure's tuneful hopefulness for Radiohead's adventurous experimentation, without losing any of the post shoegaze/dream pop buzz created on their debut.

Opinion: Excellent

Shoegaze as a term is every bit as amorphous as the music its meant to represent. After all, how can a genre tag truly span groups as diverse as AR Kane, Swervedriver, and Slowdive? Leeds-Hull group bdrmm grappled with the shoegaze lineage on their wonderful debut album ‘Bedroom’, utilising material honed at their sparkling live shows. New LP 'I Don’t Know' is an about-turn of sorts, swapping the directness of their debut for an endearing brand of eclectic minimalism.
