This excellent cut of scrappy garage tinged indie rock is the first taste we’ve had for a while from Leland Sundries. Frontman Nick Loss-Eaton wrote Radiator Sabotage in response to the maximum-temp heating blast common through winter in NYC’s old apartment blocks.

It is taken from forthcoming debt long-player Music For Outcasts which is due in early February next year. The bones of ​the record​ ​actually ​came together whilst​ ​Nick was recovering from alcohol dependency- with half the tracks written prior to his sobriety (‘time capsules to a time of desperation’ as Nick himself puts it), and the other half written whilst – incredibly – he ​prepared for​ ​open-​heart surgery (he is barely 30 years old).

The album meanders from the tongue-in-cheek power pop of Apocalypse Love Song, about reviving romance at the end of the world; the grunge-derived Greyhound From Reno; dreamy indie rock of Studebaker, replete with a psychedelic bridge; the ominous rockabilly of Wallace, ID, partly written in the namesake town; pure turn-it-up garage rock on Bad Hair Day; and an epic road trip song on Maps of the West with synth hooks.

Spin the single below.
