“I feel safer on the ground.”
Fans of the band’s previous self-titled EP will enjoy the upcoming New Arrival from Wot Gorilla? – which contains four new tracks of some more great technical guitar theatrics and post-punk melodies. The four-piece from Halifax has been impressing fans and critics in neighboring Leeds, and ultimately scored a BBC Introducing stage gig at both the Reading and Leeds Festival. Idle Hands Club will release the new disc in December, but until then – the EPs first track is available for download below.
Wot Gorilla? – Fear of Flying
“I just want to live there, love there, and die there.”
Anacortes, WA is now very much on my radar. I saw the Lonely Forest play with Manchester Orchestra sometime earlier this year when I was back in Minneapolis. Since that time last spring or summer, and with only 15 tracks from We Sing the Body Electric! to keep me company, I have been waiting restlessly for the band to record some new tracks. They recently released 4 new tracks, and I am currently still sporting a big, wide grin from ear to ear as a result. “Live There” is one of the most striking new tracks I’ve heard in awhile.
The Lonely Forest – Live There
What.a.track. Thanks, Dysneyland.
“You took the worst of me, but you left and now I’m free.”
The UK is rife with young melodic indie bands, for better or worse, and only a number of them show as much promise as the Southwest’s In Gratitude. The band recently released their free-of-charge debut EP, entitled Only In Youth, by way of their Bandcamp page. While I think we are all meant to like “Prosperity’’ best, I cant help but think that “Delirious’’ is the disc’s standout track. I fell in love with the track riding the Circle Line into class one day, a time that generally allows for a good deal of introspection. The four piece is touring the UK with good friends like Francesqa, Straight Lines, and Canterbury in tow.
