VIDEO// Towns: Gone Are The Days

Towns is a quartet from Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset, a seaside resort from which such names as John Cleese and the infallible Ritchie Blackmore have sprung. A shoegaze outfit, 'Gone Are The Days' has a physical release day of February 20th, but until then we have the digital version to keep us company! Four minutes of catchy and fuzzy guitar pop, vocals brimming with upbeat melancholia and an impressive hook, Towns know where they want to go. Guitar solos reverberate through the decidedly psychedelic video as whimsical words become waylaid. Finding his place with effortless enjambment, the lead singer gets back into the music brilliantly, dusting his efforts in a layer of subtle, foot-tapping rebellion! Stream 'Gone Are The Days' above and then look out for the physical release next month.
