Made me think of this:

I can hear the similarities. It wouldn't doubt me if there was some inspiration. The song sounds very shoegazey with a mid-90s alternative spin.

While these songs are 80's, so don't have that 90's alternative sound, you might dig the Shoegaze genre if you like layers of distorted guitars:

1987 - My Bloody Valentine, this is one of their early songs where they went with that sort of big/sublime sounding heaviness.

1989 - this one's by Lush, it's a bit more arty with the guitar. 

Here's an arty sounding MBV song from 1988.

These ones a bit more 90's sounding when alternative bands began to clean up their sound a little more:

Loveless is My Bloody Valentine's signature album (and they used something like 90 layers of guitar) from 1991:

Superblast is a 1991 single from their signature album Spooky. 91 was probably the year Shoegaze peaked, and unfortunately it fell pretty quickly afterward, but left a lasting impact on 1990s alternative music - which I'd say is 1 part noise-pop (That's the "Pixies" genre), 1 part grunge, and 1 part shoegaze. Speaking of Pixies, Lush and Pixies were both on the same label "4AD" and shared the same album cover artist, the late Vaughan Oliver.

She released her, by far, best album:

Also Jessie Ware, her last album is fucking amazing

And quite addicted to Your Name OST lately for some reason:
