My latest swirly power pop effort! RIYL Beatles, Big Star, Television, XTC, MBV

hey folks!

I've posted our stuff on here before and figured I'd share this new one off our next album (coming out August 3). I think some of you might really dig it!

the album was mixed and mastered in MONO and recorded straight to 2" tape. it's a pretty diverse collection of songs with a ton of influences (everything from The Beatles to My Bloody Valentine and Joan Of Arc to John Coltrane), but this track definitely falls heavily into the power pop/dreampop side of things.

Lots of Normal channel Vox chime, Tele/Rickenbacker jangle, and a bit of reverse reverb + tremolo swirl happening here. Enjoy!

hey folks, we just released another track from the upcoming album (out 8/3)! this one is the album opener and is one of Jojo's tunes (the other guitarist/singer in the band). definitely a more punk-y vibe and there's a pretty crazy Coltrane-inspired sax solo too! dig it:
