Childhood friends TOWNS create a spaced out suburban escapism that combines the experimental guitar sounds and DIY aesthetics of psych and shoegaze with the melodies of 60s and 90s guitar pop. Seeing the excitement of rock’n’roll as a way to escape the everyday humdrum of growing up in Weston-super-Mare, they believe in the beauty, glamour and power of ‘proper’ pop music.
TOWNS contrast kitchen sink lyrics, attractive melodies and dreamy guitars with feedback, driving bass-lines and baggy beats. The band have already made waves with previous single releases, scooping up single of the month from ARTROCKER for ‘Sleepwalking’, crashing THE GUARDIAN and XFM playlists with ‘Just Everything’, exciting Zane Lowe to declare his love for ‘Gone Are The Days’ live on air, while NME predicted that their 'new band of the year' ‘are about to cover themselves in glory’ after a typically exciting live show.
'Get By', the debut album from TOWNS due May 2014, was recorded with the help of fellow Howling Owl Records label mates Dom Mitchison (Velcro Hooks) and Hugo Bishop (Oliver Wilde) at their recently opened Malthouse Studios and was mastered by Oliver Wilde.
TOWNS have nurtured their sound amongst like-minded people in Bristol, to create an underground of DIY guitar noise, warehouse parties and good times where there are no rules and anything goes as every show finishes in a flurry of chaotic scenes and stage invasions.
