"TOWNS- Fields RADAR"

Upon my first listen of ‘Fields’ by TOWNS I felt refreshed. These West Country bumpkins have designed a song that would fit into ‘Loveless’ by My Bloody Valentine completely unrecognised to the untrained ear. Pitch-bending, psychedelic guitar riffs with underlying levels of fuzz, hard-hitting drums and spacey vocals with dreamy harmonies all work as ingredients to justify TOWNS’ adoration of vintage shoegaze.
After long last and many feeble attempts, there is finally a credible contemporary homage to the glory days of British shoegaze. In the last few years we have seen an influx of indie-pop bands try (and fail, miserably) to recreate the sound of late 80’s/early 90’s alternative rock.(yes, I’m looking at you Glasvegas. Leave The Jesus & Mary Chain alone!). However, 2011 seems to have found an authentic revitalisation of this old sound, yet it exists with a tasteful modern touch. Allow me to introduce TOWNS.

The lyrics of the song recall nostalgic times from the lack of responsibility cast upon teenage life incorporated in the chorus: “Why can’t we just be kids again / And make fun of our stupid friends / Climb out of our windows late / And hang around in fields all day”. You can view their self-made video for ‘Fields’ just here:

TOWNS are based around Bristol and are sure to be making waves around that neck of the woods in the coming months. I highly recommend keeping a watchful eye over these young lads by staying tuned to their BLOGSPOT.

TOWNS, three school friends from the south west of England, proudly present you with their first offering, ‘Fields’, which can be heard here:

Graced with youthful looks, their nights out would often get cut short. In hindsight this was a blessing in disguise, as they would then spend their evenings listening to Loveless, Evol, Methodrone, Kid A, The Stone Roses, Revolver, The Stooges, Kick Up The Flames… and The Queen Is Dead instead.

With similar influences to contemporary bands such as Autolux, The Horrors, Health, No Age, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart,Warpaint, Grinderman and Yuck, TOWNS, who are currently gigging and working on their own material, hope that one day they make a record that can be considered alongside the ones that they found so much solace in.
