Now, this one just made my weekend! Combining psychedelic and shoegaze influences in a highly potent mix, Dark Bells has something special going on. Temples posted a track from these guys on their FB page tonight, and it was an instant crush for me. They are set to support Temples throughout their UK tour later this month and the next, so it makes sense that it showed up there. As I checked them out, I found this 7″ released in 300 numbered copies through Tape Club Records in March 2013. I just ordered a copy from the label, so there should still be a chance of you getting ahold of it.
The A-side “Wildflower” really hits the spot, with a solid beat, groovy bassline (with supercrisp Rickenbacker sound), reverb guitars and strong female chanting vocals. Have played this on repeat all night..¬†¬†¬†¬† B-side “Run For Daze” adds to the formula, making this one of the strongest 7″s I’ve come across so far this year. Go get it while you can!
This is the second of the new Tape Club Records Single Series.
Limited edition of 300 7" Vinyl - mastered at Alchemy by Matt Colton and pressed at The Vinyl Factory, London.
