Gum Country Release Somewhere

Duo Gum Country’s self-described “harsh twee” project began back in Vancouver as a series of lo-fi four track recordings made in an apartment, very quietly.

After relocating to LA where … Continue reading Gum Country Release Somewhere

Introducing >>> Pillow Queens

Yet another mighty fine discovery from Dublin, Pillow Queens new single Handsome Wife comes from their upcoming debut album In Waiting (due 25th September).
