Tasmanian indie-shoegazers Lyke Gia return following the release of their debut album, with a new single, Let Up, out on August 4th. The band has been on an upward curve, gaining blog love from around the world whilst back home performing at The Falls Festival and supporting bands such as British India and Faker.
The track opens with this smothering echo, before the choppy guitars lead into this slice of chiming indie rock. Blessed with a singalong chorus and driven along by this purr of feedback and guitar countermelodies, it ebbs and flows throughout, the blurry backing vocals only serving to make it even more attractive.
They’ll go a long way on this evidence, will Lyke Giants.
“Let Up” by Lyke Giants is released 4th August 2014 through A&R Records.
