Our favorite garage-rockers from Italy VERMILLION SANDS are at it again with a brand new 7″ on the Shit Music for Shit People label, offering up two new tracks of their fun-loving folk-pop.
This is the ninth release from the ever-growing Italian label, which continues to do an excellent job with sticking to a similar folk-rock sound with all of their releases. “Summer Melody” is certainly not an exception as the guys and gal of Vermillion Sands offer up two brand new tracks. “Summer Melody” kicks off with a sharp and wobbly guitar lead that immediately supplies the song a playful attitude. Through Anna Barattin’s nasally verses and catchy vocal hooks, the crunchy guitar licks and clapping percussion do their job in making up another delightful folksy garage-pop gem from these gritty Italian rockers. B-side “A Sweet Bitter Winter” significantly slows down to a much lazier pace, trading in erratic bass lines for a much more steady, flowing rhythm. Throw in more squealing guitar licks and you’ve got yourself another solid single from the Vermillion Sands.
With results like these, clearly these guys have been practicing up but not just for the sake of practicing! The good news is that they are currently working on their sophomore album, so hopefully we hear more from these guys sooner than later. In other words, maybe you could say this 7″ is like a preview of things to come? Only time will tell!
