Hideous Towns – ‘Don’t Forget / Wake Us’

hideous-towns-dont-forget

Hideous Towns have dished up a beautiful double a-side with ‘Don’t Forget / Wake Us’ (via Lost And Lonesome)! The Melbourne foursome indulge in reverb and delay on the new waver ‘Don’t Forget’ and the stunning dream popper ‘Wake Us’. As the presser states, the latter “draws inspiration from Irving Stone’s Vincent Van Gogh biography Lust For Life. In the song, Alana imagines the life of Van Gogh’s prostitute girlfriend Christine following the couple’s break-up”. Everything Hideous Towns have given us has been great, can’t wait for their debut album (expected late this year).
