Sleeping Peonies - Ghosts, and other things

Sleeping Peonies is a relatively fresh band in the so called blackgaze or shoegaze influenced black metal genre(or whatever you want to call it, it's quite hard to find a name for this sound). They released an EP called "Rose curl, Sea swirl" last year and surprised a lot of post black metal fans with their thick and somewhat raw but at the same time melodic sound.
The band is now back with a second release named "Ghosts, and other things".

The formula is pretty much the same but the production quality and the songwriting are a lot better. The main man, Nic, hails from Norfolk, England and his music reflects a lot of influences. Some of which are: dream pop, screamo and ambient black metal band Velvet Cacoon.
I think with this new EP Sleeping Peonies will become hugely popular, although just in a small circle. They have that fresh sound, something new but you can hear that this will be an instant classic. Check it out yourself if you don't believe me and tell me your opinion in the comments:
