Guards release a free download, Silver Lining, through Partisan Records. It is taken from their forthcoming debut album, 'In Guards We Trust', out on the 29th April 2013.
Fresh from his work as guitarist in his sister's acclaimed indie-pop act Cults, and fronting garage-rock band The Willowz, Richie Follin and Cults/Willowz drummer Loren Humphrey are proud to introduce their new project, Guards.
Following months out on the road touring, Follin and Humphrey headed into the studio to shape and mould their own ideas, with the initial view of handing them back over to Cults for the second album. The recordings sounded fresh, exciting and blew out of the speakers, with Follin taking the role of vocalist, so they kept the songs for themselves.
With the addition of LA's Kaylie Church into the band as a dual vocalist, and Guards, a fizzing new concern were fully born.
'Silver Lining' is the first fruits to fall from Guards' forthcoming debut album in late Spring. It's a hazy, psychedelic stunner of a pop track, and a song that acts as a hearty calling card for this exciting New York band's work.
