airs-apart-front-cover

Here’s an exclusive listen to Airs forthcoming EP ‘Apart’, out May 30 via Bone Orchard on digital and cassette (with a vinyl release coming this fall). The San Francisco five piece combine a heavy shoegaze feel with poppy vocals and a crash n’ burn ending! Airs capture their blistering live sound on the recording, which features drummer Tom Davis (of Nevermind Me) and their final session with vocalist Aaron Kelly (who parted ways amicably last year). Sam Retton (of Midwest Moms) has already stepped in as his successor. Ahead of the EP release, Airs will be heading on tour with Crisis Arm for a short run of dates (check them out below).

Clash
 have premiered the latest tune from Flyying Colours, the super catchy ‘Running Late’. The Melbourne-based foursome have also announced their next EP ‘ROYGBIV’ (out May 12). ‘Running Late’ is held up by sugary guy/girl vocals and despite the lyrics, it’s one of their happiest sounding songs to date! Pre-order the ‘ROYGBIV’ EP now via Club AC30 (UK) or Shelflife Records (USA). Shelflife are also taking pre-orders for ‘EPX2′ (a special CD release) which combines the new EP with their first one, details of that ten track album are here.

This Love Is Deadly – ‘Vertigo’

this-love-is-deadly-want-cover

This Love Is Deadly have unveiled their second album ‘Want’, with the lead track ‘Vertigo’. The Berlin trio delivered their fuzzy s/t debut back in 2012, but their latest is a little more dreamy. ‘Vertigo’ is a stunner, not far removed from The Radio Dept. I’m not sure if the rest of the LP is this good, but I intend to find out! Pick up ‘Want’ on limited 12inch through Lovesick Records.
