The troubled with so much British guitar music right now is that a lot of it sounds so damned polite.
There's precious few individuals with a fire in their gut, with a passion, a will to succeed which spills over into absolute noize.
TOWNS though, have this in spades. An unrelenting live experience, their fusion of shoegaze textures with the nastier end of indie pop is raw, unkempt.
Working with Bristol's fine Howling Owl imprint, the band have completed work on their debut album. 'Get By' will be released on June 2nd, with recording sessions also taking place in Bristol.
In keeping with the local theme, label-mates Dom Mitchison (Velcro Hooks) and Oliver Wilde assisted on recording and mastering duties respectively.
Ahead of this, Clash can present new preview 'Heads Off'. Dirty, visceral guitar music, TOWNS have pop hooks which will tear into your flesh.
Check it out now.
