Published Nov 15, 2018Vancouver punk trio Sightlines continue to deliver the goods with a steady stream of songs. Earlier this year, they followed their excellent "North" LP with an EP called Love Ethic. As if that weren't enough, they're already back with two more tunes.
"Work Capacity" and "Brewery Creek" are out today digitally as well as on a flexi picture disc 7-inch. The songs were recorded by Chris van der Laan and Jay Arner, and the record's artwork arrives via Dana Kearley.
Speaking of the release, the band's Eric Axen said, "'Work Capacity' is a brief cautionary tale about failing to imagine a better way of life, while 'Brewery Creek 'weighs in on gentrification and Vancouver's ongoing housing crisis. Stylistically, both tracks borrow from late '90s melodic punk, moreso than the power-pop we've otherwise been writing. It made sense to put them together as a single."
Listen to "Work Capacity" and "Brewery Creek" below. The flexi will be available for free at the band's upcoming shows. It can also be purchased through their Bandcamp.
