Shimmering following

Throwing Muses was an indie band that was most active in the 1990's.

This is their song "Shimmer", off of their 1995 album "University". This was their first album with Kristin Hersh as the lead singer and principal songwriter, after Tanya Donelly left the band. Reviews were good but sales were disappointing, so the band was dropped by its major label and made two more albums on indie labels and pretty much went moribund. Kristin Hersh is still active today as a solo singer-songwriter artist and as part of a more hardcore band 50 Foot Wave.
