Watch: Trailer For Documentary 'Beautiful Noise' About My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins, Slowdive & More

The Playlist By Cain Rodriguez | The Playlist May 13, 2014 at 5:04PM

One of the boons of the internet era is the easy accessibility of once obscure music by bands like the Cocteau Twins, the Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine. While these shoegaze bands may now appear as part of the upper tier of music festival lineups, in their heyday their music was only appreciated by a small passionate fanbase that, to paraphrase Brian Eno’s famous quote about the Velvet Underground, eventually formed bands after hearing the seminal albums. Now, a new documentary is arriving that will track the influence and legacy of the shoegaze movement, and its first trailer has appeared online.

My Bloody Valentine

One of the boons of the internet era is the easy accessibility of once obscure music by bands like the Cocteau Twins, the Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine. While these shoegaze bands may now appear as part of the upper tier of music festival lineups, in their heyday their music was only appreciated by a small passionate fanbase that, to paraphrase Brian Eno’s famous quote about the Velvet Underground, eventually formed bands after hearing the seminal albums. Now, a new documentary is arriving that will track the influence and legacy of the shoegaze movement, and its first trailer has appeared online.

As Pitchfork reports, the Eric Green-helmed and Sarah Ogletree-produced “Beautiful Noise” began life as a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2012 and will finally screen in front of audiences next month. The doc will show how the aforementioned bands—and others, including Slowdive and Chapterhouse—“influenced generations of bands.” Among the fans interviewed are Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, Oscar-winner Trent Reznor, Billy Corgan and Robert Smith. “Beautiful Noise” will premiere on May 31st at the Seattle International Film Festival. Watch the minute-and-a-half trailer below.
