After seperating into various side-projects for a bit Beach Fossils are back with a new track titled Shallow. SPIN has got a real nice write-up that includes this quote:

“Indie rock has been so safe for so long,” Payseur says, between sips of tea at a coffee shop in his Greenpoint neighborhood. “People have been playing this pretty music that’s quiet and melodic and while there’s beauty in that, in making this album I’ve just ended up wanting to rebel against myself and make something really noisy.”

After first listen I couldn’t help but envision a rainy day – I believe it is the combination of these darker sounds and Dustin’s uncanny knack for jangle. I’m also glad that Dustin mentions why their shows are so energetic (Beach Fossils are currently my favorite live band) – Shallow is off of an upcoming 7″ dropping on CT at the end of the month. I’m going to end this post with a quote:

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” – Charles Dickens
