Published Jun 22, 2015Ahead of travelling to Calgary's Sled Island festival this week, Vancouver power-pop unit Uptights have issued another gleefully organ-soaked single. This one is called "Further from Home," and it comes paired with another of the band's cinema-tributing montage videos.
Guitarist Jason Stevenson's vocals land a little remiss on the rave-up, in which he regrets taking life for granted and losing all the "ones that got away." Despite its longing tone, the track is lifted by Uptights' sonic positivity, from said organs to its Pharmacists'-style jangle and bounce.
Down below, you'll find both an audio stream of the track and an accompanying video splicing together clips from René Clair's 1924 short, Entr'acte. The visuals were edited by Karl Mundt.
"Further from Home" follows Uptights' "Edge of the Earth"/"Some People". Judging by the artwork up above, another new song titled "Quiet Times" is on the way.
