The Stevens 'The Stevens' (EP stream)
Published Aug 25, 2014Aussie audiences were treated to a pressing of indie pop unit the Stevens' 7-inch last year through Chapter Music, with the record quickly selling out before making it over en masse to our continent. Thankfully, Vancouver imprint Kingfisher Bluez is making things easier to grab a copy by pressing up a limited run in North America.
Inspired by the Flying Nun scene of yore, the six-song debut presents a lo-fi jangle of six-strings and charming, if occasionally unstable, vocal harmonies on "Teenage Satellites" and "Weaving." Comprising members of Twerps and Boomgates, the group build up peppy arrangements full of spindling guitar sonics and driving, understated rhythms for tracks like "Fast Cars."
The new pressing is set to ship September 1, but you can buy it digitally on Bandcamp or check out a full stream of the release down below. Also head here to check out all the band's upcoming U.S. tour dates.
