Back to lo-fi: we contribute to Eardrums’ 5-year anniversary comp

It was thrilling to work with a professional producer on our last album. But when our friends at EardrumsPop asked if we’d contribute a song for their 5-year anniversary compilation, I seized the chance to record and mix an Onward Chariots song all by myself, entirely at home, for the first time. I edited very little and mixed as quickly as possible. The result, inspired by first hearing Spearmint‘s indie pop classic “Sweeping the Nation”, is rough but arguably extremely sincere. Enjoy!

Cameo, April 14

We’re very pleased to be playing our first show at Cameo Gallery on Sunday, April 14. We’ll be sharing this beautiful, magical space with DRGN King and Walking Shapes. Our record has also just been sent to college radio stations across the U.S. – look for us at the left of the dial!
