White Wishes are an indie-rock band from St. Petersburg, Russia. They make their 7" vinyl debut on Shelflife with the "Come And Say Hello" b/w "Jimmy" single. Two pure pop tracks with a nod to classic c86 influences. Fuzz filled and blissfully simple, "Come And Say Hello" could be a lost Golden Dawn single from a parallel Sarah Records universe. The upbeat, effortlessly catchy "Jimmy" is filled with sonic pop bliss. Nikita's brilliant Stephen Pastel-esque vocals are perfect against his punchy guitar strum. "Come And Say Hello" is shaping up to be the single of the summer.

For fans of: 14 Iced Bears, Felt, The Pastels, The Groove Farm, Orange Juice, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, The Golden Dawn

Praise for White Wishes:

"...delicious listen from beginning to end, full of irresistible hooks, hazy vocals, and clean instrumentals. Pulsing and progressive, these guys have balanced that tricky line between loose and focused."
- FensePost

"Motorama, My Teenage Stride, Smiths stripped down to a one man band. Sometimes with some programmed drummer sometimes just plain guitar and reverb drenched voice. It's quite nice."
- Dying for Bad Music

"It is reminiscent in parts of bands like The Field Mice and Galaxy 500 but also has its own sound which is very much today."
- Burning World

"Sounding like a cross between Minks and Real Estate, White Wishes continues to deliver relaxed tunes coursing dreamy guitar riffs and oozing soothing vocals."
- Escucharemos

"I'm not often at a loss for words when it comes to music, but regarding White Wishes let me say this: if this is what they are choosing to just give away, the official release should be phenomenal."
- Tympanogram

"The lush and airy vocals soar right over the big reverb-y percussion, as the jangly guitar-hook sits quietly in the background. It's warm and inviting, a gentle touch."
