Song of the Day #54: Guantanamo Baywatch – “Too Late”

guantanamo baywatch darling... it's too late lp suicide squeeze 2015

GUANTANAMO BAYWATCH is making a comeback in early 2015 with a brand new full length record. Darling… It’s Too Late is their third LP since 2010 and it will be their first full-length for Suicide Squeeze Records. The label just set free the album’s lead single, “Too Late,” featuring backup vocals from Curtis Harding.

It’s a sparkling and completely innocent number that will leave you with a heavy heart. You’re immediately awash in
sultry soul vibes, following a wonky bass line and highly-concentrated guitar twangs that are bright and clean. They’re shooting for that all-too-familiar tone, loaded with authentic analog-quality crackles and the results are dead on. They clean up their rambunctious surf-rock attack only slightly, ending up with an album containing a slew of influences.

Listen to “Too Late” right below and go pre-order the LP via Suicide Squeeze: it’s officially released on May 12th (LP/CD) with the first 1,000 records on peaches-and-cream colored vinyl.
