Towns – Gone Are The Days

Released on 20th February 2012 on Cartoon Records

Reviewed by Francesca Baker

A band called Towns. From Western Super Mare. Surely this will be as grim as an STD? Na ah. Looping like decaying rollercoasters on their last journey, Gone Are The Days fuzzes and fizzes, the smooth vocals lapping up the vibrating bass and guitar riff which have the texture of a seaside hooker. Drenched in lush reverb and intense, and recorded in a few hazy days with producer Owen Morris (Oasis, Verve) the 90s guitar influence is evident, calling to mind contemporaries such as Tribes and Cinemawave. Hosting band nights and releasing cassettes this a band clearly absorbed in the buzz of their music who deserve he attention being administered by NME and the like. Catch them with Outfit at Barfly on the 23rd of January.
