Guards - "Hear You Call"

Last summer, when I first heard the Guards excellent debut EP (free), I knew them as ex-singer/guitarist of Willowz's new band (You might remember the catchy squall of "Ulcer Soul"). Now a year later, his sister's band, Cults, has blown up and they are touring together. They'll be tearing up Mississippi Studios on Saturday, July 23rd.

"Hear You Call"is off their new Resolution Of One single and is just as catchy as the title track. Propelled by upbeat drums, it features cheering chorus, distant backing vocals, all wrapped in a lo-fi buzz. It sounds like summer and should be enough to convince people to show up early for their set. I have a feeling that show is going to be packed.
